Braces are finally on.

I got my top braces on yesterday. I was a bit nervous, but it went really well.
They told me that my mouth would be sore for a few days, but not to "baby" my teeth. So the first thing I did was eat a hamburger and chew on some gum.
This morning, I woke up and they are pretty sore. I feel like if I were to touch them, they'd fall out. Now, it's definitely hard not to baby them and eat soft foods.
I'm still not used to my braces and it feels weird when I look in the mirror, but I was assured that I'd get used to them soon. I got the ceramics, so they're not as noticeable in pictures and when you stand from a distance, but they are noticeable.
My next appointment is in September. I guess they'll tighten them and decide when to put my bottoms on.
