I cannot even believe that I have actually had my braces on for 3 months already! It was a VERY difficult adjustment and in the beginning I kept thinking 'how could a person EVER get used to this- IT'S HORRIBLE!' And now I have to say...that I am pretty used to them, they removed that garish coil and now if I stand back far enough for pictures you can't even tell that I have them since I opted to get the clear braces on top.
Having braces is a pain in the butt! It's hard to eat, taking care of them is labor intensive, and of course there is the expense but when I look at these before and after pics of JUST 3 MONTHS--- it makes it all worth it!

CAN YOU BELIEVE THE DIFFERENCE!!! In the beginning I thought this was a mistake but now I know it was worth it! Well, fingers crossed all continues to go well!!!
(Side note....they are not painful at all, at times a little uncomfortable but never 'painful' which I did not expect because I hear people complain about the intense pain of having your wires changed....but then again most people who have had braces are teenagers who have not had c-sections or any other major surgeries)
