Braces Thingy: 3 years with braces

Its almost 3 years since I started wearing braces and Im still wearing it…during the 3 years, my orthodontist had maternity leave  for 2 times and so I didnt have any appointment/check up(or whatever you call it) during that time which made my treatment slow..and also I think its because Ive been very bad for not wearing the elastic as been told..seriously wearing elastic is no fun…its making my gums hurt…really not comfortable…

CL-2-Elastic-Open

that rubber band is called elastic..

elastics

the elastics that i dont really use..xD

not much problem in the 3 years except for the annoying archwire that keep poking my cheeks…its really annoying that I cant even smile properly…another thing that kinda bother me is after I start using braces, I have slight lisp…mostly when I speak English..its not really a problem tho..but sometimes its just embarrassing..

dental wax

the dental wax..my savior when the archwire poking my cheeks…

btw during the 3 years wearing braces,I dont really have color elastic ligature…boring…hmm I should request color elastic ligature before they take off my braces ^^

on my next appointment..my orthodontist will probably going to set the date for taking my braces off.

Braces Thingy: 7 months wearing braces; pain come and go~

Its been 7 months Im using braces..and its also been 7 months not drinking fizzy drinks..can you believe that?? I miss drinking Coke tho..but yaa I dont want to drink any fizzy drinks while using braces…because of braces and trying to do healthy diet..keke…so yaa 7 months..Im use to it already…I can eat hard food too..keke its actually not good but sometimes I just want to munch hard food…so tired of eating soft food…

Now my teeth are all straight..no more crooked teeth…except for there’s still gap..my orthodontist said it will be fixed…btw I just got my braces tightened today..as usual its painful…braces feel so tight right now..its very annoying…but yaa Im use to it already…usually I will eat Ice cream to soothe the pain temporarily since I dont want to depend so much on painkiller…

so far life with braces is okay..like the title pain come and go…usually my braces feels so tight in the morning…probably because the way I sleep….also when wearing braces..not many food is yummy..because everytime I eat..i always think about food stuck at the braces which sometimes makes me dont want to eat..haha because Im so lazy to clean..also everywhere I go I need to bring toothpick…when I eat..food never fail to stuck at the braces..its annoying..

okies thats all I wanna update about my braces life 🙂

Braces Thingy: 2 months with braces~

Its already been 2 months since I start using braces..Im use to it already…the pain come and go..sometimes it feels so tight and uncomfortable because the teeth are moving…so far having braces is okay..just hate it when I cant eat normally..with braces I need to eat very extra slow and have to cut the food into smaller pieces before eating…I cant eat hard food and sticky food coz it will ruin the braces plus it will make it hard to brush the teeth…so what I do is to avoid eating those yummy food…its really tempting tho..LOL

oh yaa my teeth are almost straight..no more crooked teeth…wow the teeth movement are so fast..except for the gap by the 4 pre-molars teeth that been extracted before..the gap are still huge..wonder what will happen at that part..I have no idea…another the thing I hate about braces is that it ruin my lips…I hate this part the most..my lips are always dry..srsly no go…my sister always criticize  my lips and its stressing me up..oh well lip balm is my saviour..I have to use it like every 15 minutes..annoying but I have too..having braces is equal to high maintenance! so many to take care of…

hmmm so thats all I wanna update about my braces life..next orthodontic appointment will be on 15th November..oh I hate the part when the braces got tightened..I only love the part where I can change the colour of the elastic ligature..the rest are equal to PAIN…haha

btw here is my braces with purple elastic ligature..not clear tho..

 

my awkward smile~

Braces Thingy: broken brackets and elastic ligature crisis

Photobucket

Its been 2 weeks wearing braces..and I already know how to floss well..it was very hard at first but then when I’ve tried over and over again..Im getting it and can do it well..but be careful when flossing..haha you might broke the brackets..thats what happened to me..I broke my brackets while flossing real hard..lol I just want my teeth to be perfectly clean…well it is clean but the problem is I broke my brackets…I was terrified that time..haha so afraid to call my orthodontist..but still have to go fix the braces..my orthodontist had to open all the arch wire and change all the elastic ligature!! and of course I got my braces tighten..actually my appointment for tighten and change elastic ligature is next week..but I went a week earlier since I broke the brackets..haha

the cool thing is I can get rid of the grey elastic ligature..now Im having Lavender and light purple elastic ligature (apparently I haven take a pix of my braces) ..well I dont have this colour in mind..but that time the ortho assistant are kinda got this pushing-please-stop-being-choosy face to me..so I just randomly picked the colour..but yaa I like the colour noww…

talking about elastic ligature..I think I swallow it while eating…it happened yesterday..on the same day I went to the dentist for fixing the brackets…haha I was like ‘nooooo whyyy do I have this kind of problem now?? I just went to the dentistttt’ so yaa I went to the dentist to get new elastic ligature that have fall off..luckily my orthodontist wasnt mad at me..haha Im such a troublesome…


Braces Thingy: One Week with Braces

Its been one week Im wearing braces..so far its ok and life is not that miserable after all…the pain was with me for 3 days..during that time it was really awful that it can make mecry..the pain go to the head and it gives me headache..also its so hard to eat and it hurts when you clenched the teeth…

although its been one week, its still so hard for me to speak..haha weird..and of course when eating..the only food I can eat is all those soft food and a must in the menu is the soup..the disadvantages of using braces is you cant eat yummy food..haha but its ok..it should help me to lose weight..haha

here is my pix with my braces..and yaa thats my friend Deena and Nizan~

Braces Thingy: The Braces and The Pain

Photobucket

I just got my braces yesterday!! Finally the waiting is over..I was very excited the night before I got my braces that I cant sleep…hehe well I was nervous at the same time too…but apparently not enough sleep before you get your braces is a NO GO..because your braces will make your teeth feel sore and uncomfortable few hours after and you cant even sleep….it wasnt hurt at all when my orthodontist put on the braces to me..its painless and cant feel anything except during she put on the wire…it feel weird..but no pain…and not bad..it only take around 45 minutes for her to put on everything..and oh yaa I still dont have colours for my braces..its only gray for now..will choose the colour on  the next appointment…

the braces for the first few hours was ok..no pain..but then when the pain started to come..it feels awful and really painful..very very sore..just imagine like your teeth being push or punch real hard..the pain also gives me headache..I feel like crying…so yaa expect this when you get braces..it doesnt hurt when they put on the braces but will hurt after few hours…and its awfully painful….again the best thing to do is to not think about the pain…or it will hurt more…

btw I got a new look with braces..haha and an awkward smiles too..also make me hard to speak properly…so weird..haha but my othodontist said I will get use to it..and her advice to me Just be confident with braces and smiles because hiding the braces is not nice..so yaa SMILE~

Braces Thingy: Im getting braces on Monday

Photobucket

This is very random..hehe but yay! 30th August is coming which is the day after tomorrow..thats the day I will use braces!! OMG Im kinda excited and some part of me is nervous..Ive been doing many research about getting braces on..about how long will it take..will it hurt and bla bla bla…well from my research they said it will not hurt when they put on the braces..but then after few hours the pain will start to come because of the movement of the teeth..so yaa Im nervous for that part..and also Im pretty sure I cannot eat all those yummy food…haha I cant hardly chew any food now tho..the band that Im using now is kinda annoying sometimes..I hate it when the food stuck there..and about the ucler thingy that cause by the band..it only lasted for 1 week of pain..after that no more ulcer coming…

so yaa Im getting braces on Monday…Im looking forward to it..hehe Ive been waiting for so long..lets go for straight teeth and beautiful smiles..hehe..btw I havent decide what color to choose..well I dont know whether my orthodontist will do everything that day..maybe she will ask me to choose the color at the next appoinment..hmm Im not sure..but yaa I want to try rainbow first..like the pix below..it looks cool..or maybe just pink and blue my most favourite colour…hmmm dunno laa..lets just see on Monday…hehe


Braces Thingy: the band and the annoying ulcer

Photobucket

Im getting braces soon..I already use the band for braces since Monday, and it feel uncomfortable..it was ok for the few hours but the next day I woke up with an ulcer in my mouth..its annoying and painful..my orthodontist told me that its normal to have ulcer when you use the band and of course when you get the braces on…its been six days using the band and Im still not use to it..I just hate the pain cause by the ulcer..other thing is ok to me..well sometimes the band annoyed me because its stick so fixed in my 4 molars..the best way is to ignore it and dont think about it too much..

I feel excited to use braces because I really want to have nice straight teeth..but now sometimes I feel dont want to continue the treatment..its all because of the annoying ulcer cause by it..I just dont like that part like seriously…its hard to brush the teeth and I got an awkward smiles because of the ulcer…but yaa I will try to get use to it and live with it..this is for the sake’s of nice straight teeth and beautiful smiles..plus the dentist already pulled out 4 tooth..and I cant turn back or stop this treatment or else my teeth will look ugly..

band

for me using the separators and band arent that bad and hurt but the effects after few hours are the one that really annoying..such as separators it give you tooth ache while the band give you ulcer…the separators annoying part is its as if there’s food stuck between your teeth..thats the No Go part..and another thing about getting braces on is when you have to do extraction..they need to pull out 4 teeth for this orthodontics treatment…my experience for extraction part was not bad..1st extraction of my 2 right premolars was hurt badly but the 2nd extraction was okay and doesnt hurt much..

separators

I think thats all I wanna share here..hehe I dont know how to explain..very bad at explaining..plus my English is not good..hehe sorry for my broken English..btw credit pictures to the owner (sorry I dont know the exact owner got it from google)
