So, why does this already suck? I wasn't expecting to have anything done today, but they put my spacers in at the end of the appointment. Getting them put in didn't particularly suck. Pretty painless and they went in easy. And really no pain right after everything went in. Just felt weird having something constantly stuck between my teeth. I HATE that feeling.... like, really bad. But now my teeth are achy and I have a headache. And the teeth on my left side are squeezing up and together and there is a lot of pressure and clicking. And the thing bothering me the most is when I bite down, now my teeth aren't fitting together right on that side. Ugh.... hopefully this isn't an indicator of how bad the braces are going to suck. I know I've heard people say the spacers are the worst part of it, and some people say they were no sweat. Hopefully I'm one of those people where they are the worst part, because I can't stand these right now.
And yes, you heard me right-- braces are going on next Monday the 13th!! 10am right before I go into work. Hopefully I'm not too sore after for the rest of the day.
I have to stay away from hard/sticky stuff, but I am seriously treating myself to some awesomeness before these braces go on. I think I'm going to go to local asian seafood buffet. Yummo :)
