    Smile Finally got braces on yesterday after 16 years of umming and aahing!

    Hi there! Yesterday I got braces after 16 years of contemplating! If only I could go back in time to my high school self and convince her to do it back then... oh well, better late than never!

    So far I haven't experienced too much pain. My main gripe is eating! Wow! I didn't realise just how tricky it would be....and how much cleaning and maintenance would be required. The gritty feeling of food stuck in every brace...eeew! But...it's for a wonderful cause, so it'll all be worth it in the end.

    Anyhow, I'd love to share this journey with fellow braced-people - the good parts and the gripes - so if anyone wants a Braces Buddy, I'm keen :)

    P.S. I really want to bite into a crunchy biscuit. But, I won't!

    Hi, good on you for finally getting your brace :) I also wish I did it earlier, I kept putting it off and off, until I just had to do it lol.
    I haven't found eating too much of a problem to be honest, I just break the 'finger' foods up with my fingers and chew with my back teeth only - it avoids getting any food stuck in the brace and any other food I just cut up small before eating.
    It will all be worth it in the end, good luck with your progress.
