Today I went to my ortho and they said they would put the bottom braces and the top ones in another 2 weeks. The process didnt hurt except since my teeth are pretty crowded, it hurt when he pushed the bracket back. I got navy blue and I like the color.
So today I got my spacers, and they hurt very, very, very badly. They also put in my expander, which they needed to file in between my teeth. The expander didnt hurt, its just really uncomfortable and annoying. I need to have it on for 2-4 months. But I'm ready to take it out already! I haven't had anything today except a smoothie from McDonalds and some green tea ice cream. I can't even swallow my own saliva. /: Thursday I get my spacers off, and I'm not sure what else they are going to do. But
Last week, I went to my orthodontist to get impressions. At first he said that I was going to get 4 of my teeth extracted. (the teeth next to my "canines") But when I went last week, he said I need to expand my jaw so that I need 8 spacers! We made an appointment for July 31 to get the spacers and then on August 2 I am going to have the spacers get taken off and get the brackets put on.
My emotions... are mixed. I'm nervous, yet happy; scared, yet excited. I don't know
