Well, they are officially on. What a process and one that I am not surprised I blocked out of my junior high memories. Although things have changed a bit. This crazy contraption is what they had me in for almost two hours:
The whole time my mouth was being sucked dry and pulled open beyond comfort, I could not help but think that the man who invented this terrible device must also have been the man behind creating the jaw trap device in Saw.
A bit dramatic? Not one bit.
Anyway I will try to have the hubby take some pictures so we can begin to track the process but I can already tell that the teeth are on the move! Slimfast and mashed potatoes for me :) I think I will have to invest in some mac and cheese too. If anyone has ideas for soft, good-to-eat-with-braces food I am all ears! I'm sure many things will begin to get boring.
I've been hearing this a lot in 24 hours, but they are... they are that noticable. 22 months of my life I hope will fly by!
