I have braces. Oh my!
After the first 48 hours, here are my initial reactions (in no particular order):
Brushing my teeth makes me want to cry (I mean…ouch!), but I do it anyway.
When it comes to what I eat, I’m completely paranoid.
Who knew flossing could be so complicated???
Biting into food is not a good idea yet…hello, pain!
Chewing is challenging.
The use of utensils is apparently a skill to be relearned (and preferably soon).
Straws are fantastic.
Clear brackets rock (even if they are only on the top)!
Two years feels like a long time.
Thank goodness for milkshakes!
So from those of you who have experienced braces, any words of wisdom or advice?
