Pre-braces photos

So... I got my top braces fitted 2 days ago. All I can say is that I HATE THEM! I thought they were going to be painful but not that uncomfortable, I was also worried about what they would look like but after 2 days I dont mind that much what they look like, they are not that painful but they are SOOOOOOOO UNCOMFORTABLE! Im a bit cranky because I havent had a proper meal since I had them on, how long until I can eat something normal? I can't survive on soup!! Im really upset, it feels like my top lip is resting on  the wire... I havent taken any pictures yet, I'll do that tomorrow.

Im getting my left L5 removed next week and a couple of weeks later I'll get the bottom braces fitted.

I'll keep you posted!

Much love!

This is what happens when I push my jaw forward

loooooovely angle!!


  1. the braces are tough at first, and I don't think people really warn you, either. I'm almost at 2 years, (surgery for overbite soon), and I never notice them anymore. Even the pain of teeth moving is just part of life now. Your teeth will move really fast at first, though, so that's rewarding. And at some point you'll look in the mirror, or notice how much better you teeth fit together (even with the overbite), and you'll be so glad you did it.
    Best of luck!

    1. yeah they 'forgot to mention' how big the feel in the beginning... Im kind of used to them now and they are not hurting but my top teeth are pretty straight, im not looking forward to getting the bottom ones fitted, im sure they'll hurt more :(
      When are you getting the surgery? Do you have a blog as well? I find it really helpful to find out about other people's stories...

      Thanks for your kind words :)

      Good luck to you too!!
