Brie's braces update

It has been almost 2 months since Brie got her braces and I am happy to report that things are going very well. It's going way better than we thought. She adjusted really quickly to them and feels like having them is just normal now. She has figured out what she can and can't eat and methods to make eating certain things a bit easier. The only real issue she has had so far is a bit of pain from the pressure of her teeth moving. It is amazing to see just how much her teeth have moved already! Our schedules have not been coinciding for me to snap a photo but I am sure I can pin her down some time soon and sneak one in. Brie has done really well with the extra teeth brushing and longer flossing time. It takes longer but she knows how important it is throughout this process.

On her last orthodontist visit she asked the technician how many colors she could get for her rubber bands. She was told she can get as many as she wanted. Of course she requested rainbow. My girl loves her colors!!

  1. TOOO CUTE! I AM SO HAPPY FOR HER! BRACES WERE A LOT OF FUN WHEN I WORE THEM. QUESTION, HAS SHE NEEDED BRACES WAX YET? I HOPE NOT!

  2. @Tanyetta~ she had to use the wax one time for a broken wire. It was not bad though and we were able to go in the next day to get it fixed. 2 months down only 2 years and 10 months to go!

  4. Yeah, I remember the only discomfort would be right after I got my braces tightened... cuz i would literally feel my teeth sore as they shifted into place. Fortunately, that didnt last too long.
