Braces are finally on!

On Monday 5th dec i finally had my braces fitted on both the top and bottom :) The first three days i didn't like very much as i noticed that the wax i was given wasn't helping with a bit of wire at the back of my teeth which was digging into my cheek, but luckily where i work i have an orthodontist just upstairs and i managed to bump into a dental nurse who was able to fit me in with someone to have it clipped off as the pain was awful at the time making it difficult to move my mouth. Now that the wire is sorted out i already forget i have my braces on sometimes, i just need to to get used to eating with them now...i just want to bite into something! I think when i chew i'm too scared of braking a bracket off. I have 2 months or so to get used to everything now though as my next appt to have them tightened isn't until 20th feb 2012 now...cant wait to see my teeth straighten up! :)
