braces update

i got spacers(separators) in my mouth today. They are a shade of pretty blue. Like turquoise, maybe? How am I supposed to know? They are in my mouth?

Anyways, the pain has yet to come. I have been told several time from multiple sources that the feeling the next day is not so lovely.

My first experience of UFO's in my mouth. Ms. Orthodonist was correct; these small things of elastic do feel quite like pieces of meat in my mouth.

Friday is one last appointment to get me prepped for actual appliances.

Someday next week I will be getting them on.

I know this is rather an odd question, but anyone have any suggestions for colors I should get? I'm not sure if I should go for Halloween themed or not.

In general braces news, I am trying to think of the positives. i.e. colors.

More later.

Happy Yom Kippur for those celebrating.

My son just chose his favorite color...blue...But then one time he chose red (I think) to match his girlfriends. (LOL!) I don't necessarily recommend that though.;)

When I had braces (about 100 years ago) they didn't have colors to choose from. Sigh. I just had to wear plain old rubber band colored ones.

Good luck with yours!

God Bless,
Amy:)

I had braces in 8th-10th grade. I always themed my rubber bands to the Holidays...so this time of year I would definitely have gotten orange and black...

Good luck with the braces. Every time I had them tightened my mom had to make me mashed potatoes and frozen yogurt...what I mean to say is that you are going to LOVE them. (When they come off.)

Sorry, I'll stop...

I never wore braces but I'll bet it will be an interesting journey. Your teeth will be beautiful, I'm sure.
PS, I like your blog layout.
