When I was told I needed to wear braces, I didn’t really know what to expect. I was a bit worried whether the kids at school might tease me, but nothing much was said really.
I was looking forward to choosing a colour for my new brace, and picked a nice pink and purple one.
I found them a bit uncomfortable for about the first month, but after that I soon got used to them and they never really bothered me.
I had to use two special toothbrushes to brush my teeth. It took a little longer than usual, but I didn’t mind.
This week, I had my brace taken off. It doesn’t seem like nearly a year later. I am going to have a retainer fitted tomorrow which I will have to wear for about 12 months.
I am really happy with my teeth now. I can’t believe how straight they are. I am so glad that I had a brace fitted, it was well worth it.
