It had been a long time since i've blogged..
so i'm doing a second braces update!!
My bottom and upper teeth are really straight now!
Was looking back at my first braces post... WAKAO!!
soooo messy! why did i ever think that my teeth was OKAY last time??
So on the 7th month, I started on ELASTICS!
These small rubber bands are as painful as the spacers
it was sooooooooo sore the first week...
but after that it was okay except for the occasional snapping of the bands when i yawn or sneeze.
it snap like 3-4 times a day! I used up the bag of elastics 3 weeks into elastic treatment hahaha
but thankfully, it's free~ hahaha
sooo... what does the elastic do?
i went to google/youtube to look for diagrams to illustrate how it moves and all..
As you can see, the bottom and upper row are closer together now~
and it seems like the front row is less protruding
I'll need to go back and ask Dr Tang if I still need an extraction to correct the overbite.
After one more change of wire on my bottom row, i can remove them liao~~
TIPS on choosing colors for ceramic braces:
Choose iliac if you love eating curry or drink tea!
They won't stain!
Even if they do, they become pearl white ---> transparent.
The first few months i choose transparent and they stain so badly!
looks super super super yellow and makes my teeth looks yellow too!
