I got my separators this week and one of them fell the next day. I went back to the dentist to replace it and he got one more between my teeth. It fell the next morning. He had given me 2 separators to install myself if some fell off again so I did that…it got in…but I don’t know if it’s at the right place!!
I hope it is not what my next 3 years will be like !I have gone to the dentist so much since summe that the corners of my mouth are red and it hurts. To install the separators the second time, the guy had less experience (it was an emergency, my own team wasn’t there) and the floss cut my mouth corners. Last night it really hurt. So I applied tea tree oil in case it gets infected and anyway it’s good for every kind of bobo and I applied petroleum jelly so it doesn’t dry out and crack. Not fun.
A colleague says I’m going to be fabulous when they come off and it makes me laugh. It was my argument to make peace with the whole thing at the start. I appreciate his humor about this. When I get my braces off, it will be worth it I hope !
Do any of you have braces or had some as an adult ? How much time did it take before you got to take them off ? Are you happy with how the things are going or with the results ?
