A few things that I have learned.
1.) It hurts like the dickens getting your tongue stuck in the braces!!! Had to have Frank help me get my tongue un-stuck. That one...yeah you know already, but it really did hurt.
2.) To floss my teeth with braces I have to be a contortionist. I have laughed SO many times at myself. Watching myself floss my teeth...yeah I could be a runner up in America's Funniest Home Videos...really I could!
3.) When you get bigger wires...it hurts. 3+ years to go! GO BABY! Also, your teeth move...which aren't such a big deal unless your me. Holy cow! The tooth sensitivity will drop you to your knees!!! WOW! So I get to take a week off from wearing my bands (4 of them) and I'm to invest in the toothpaste called Sensodine. Yup! I was also told that since I'm older my teeth are more sensitive. I'M OLD! BHAHAHAHA!
Well so far that's my two bits of having braces for 4 months! A whole lot of nothing!
