So I survived my first month of wearing braces. I just recently got my braces tightened which wasn’t that bad like I originally thought. My first thought is that the pain would end up being worse than when I first got them on. Luckily, it was the exact opposite. I believe I was uncomfortable for maybe all of two days.
My Orthodontist placed the same size wire on both bottom and top rows however, she added a thicker wire to my right top side molars in order for my one tooth to drop down (my problem tooth).
Overall, I do see a difference in my smile and I am quite intrigued as to how my smile will turn out at the end of all of this.

For all f those first time braces wearers, how are you coping with your new grill (teeth)?
