What so bad about braces?!
What so bad about braces?
i'm getting my braces put on and people say they hurt but what kind of pain is it and when does it occur
nothing is bad bout them, they help u have a good smile in the long run!!!
it hurts way more when u are an adult because as a kid ur teeth are growing so they can move aorund unlike adult teeth which are all firm so u are lucky
***pink and light blue are cute colors
***NEVER get white or clear bands cause white looks like food is stuck in ur braces and clear like it u eat ketchup or a lollipop or somethin, they stain
***they put the bands, and then every time u go back u get to choose new colors
i have gotton em on over 6 times (dont ask!)
it doesnt hurt dont worry-it is just a long process and it tastes kinda bad
they give u a band on ur molars fiist, to see ur size and stuff
first theu put this positioner thing is ur mouth, it makes your mouth stretch a lkot so they can see ur teeth, it will bother u for a minute or 2 but u will get used to it, u keep that thing on the WHOLE time
then there are these things that look like shots and stuff, i got really freaked out when i first saw them but actually, they dont go in ur mouth! this is the cement that they put on ur braces then they stick the braces on ur teeth
**the cement kinda tastes bad!
then they will put the rubber bands on ur braces with things that look like sisscors (they dont hurt) after that they put the wire-this is the most anoying part cause after they slip it in ur mouth, they have to cut it to make it fit right
then that is it!Ur done
but after u do it, ask ur doctor for dental wax, and rubber cover up
when u get home use ACT mouthwash and for the first hour, ur teeth may be a little numb so drink mainly fluids-clear fluids
then for the first day or 2 ur teeth may be a little sensitive so stick with eating soup, pasta, and soft foods-avoid straws
every night use Peroxyl mouthwash for like a week to keep ur gums storng from cuts and use dental wax and rubber coverups so u wont get blisters, they hurt a little but arent that bad. avoid sleeping on ur side, try to keep ur head straight up for a couple of days
every morning and every night use the Peroxyl mouthwash again for 2 weeks then after that just use ACT mouthwash to keep ur teeth and gum s healthy. get some Super floss, made for braces-i sugest elictrical toothbrushes they keep ur mouth cleaner
dont worry-trust me- i have had my braces on for almost 4 years, i am gettin em off on July 3-my friend says it acutally hurts more to get em off so yea
