So i finally had my first foray into the world of lingual braces. I'm having both upper and lower fitted but today i got the lower brackets fitted.

The whole experience was completely fine, no real discomfort and it was all fitted within the hour. Tongue is getting used to all these brackets and the first thing i noticed was that i couldn't properly bite down at the back, which i was told is normal. Not tried to eat anything yet but other than finding it difficult to properly chew i can't see there being any problems.

I go back in a month to have the wire fitted and have the upper brackets put in too. Before then i have to have a lower incisor removed.

SO far so good though! my speech seems unaffected, i'm sure that'll change once the wire is fitted. i'll put up some pics once both brackets and wires are installed so i can start seeing the progress.
