Ok, so I'm not quite ready to show pictures of my own mouth on the internet for everyone to see. This will take time, confidence, and humility. All of which, are not strong qualities I possess in this new braced adventure.

Yesterday they put these puppies in on four of my back molars --->

I know I had braces as a kid, and I know this isn't even the worst part (those darn separators were evil last week), but MAN these are tearing up my cheeks!! How quickly one forgets the pains of junior high!! ( In more ways than one)

Plus side, my husband is receiving a lot of evening silence as my mouth hurts too much to talk at the end of the day.

They also took impressions yesterday so that they can map out a plan for the braces that go on NEXT WEDNESDAY. How come that stuff has to be the nastiest stuff on earth? You are drooling, gagging and left with a light pink crust all over your face. You'd think in the fifteen plus years it has been since I did this the first time they would have thought of a better solution!!

Until next time,

Brace Face
