Before Christmas, I got my braces on. I went in for my consultation thinking the orthodontist was going to examine my teeth and then set the date up to get them on (like my daughter had went through with regular braces). I totally did not expect to walk out that afternoon with my new braces on my teeth!
Excuse the “no make-up” look. The dentist wiped most of it off!
From the moment I walked in — getting impressions, photos, molds of my teeth, and the actual braces put on, I was only in the orthodontist office for about an hour and a half tops. With my daughter, I remember her braces and everything taking a very long time. With the Damon Braces, putting them on only took about 45 minutes total.
The piece that goes in your mouth to hold your lips apart doesn’t hurt and has a cool suction device on it so your spit doesn’t drown you (something I was really concerned about).
How Have I Done Since Getting the Braces On
I have now have my braces on for more than a month and I can tell you that my teeth have moved already! I can really tell a difference. My friend and I were talking about it the other day and she said she has noticed that since getting my braces on, I am already starting to smile a lot more. She said that before I got them on, I was always smiling sheepishly or hiding my smile. Now, I just let the smiles rip, because I know I am on the way to getting a beautiful grin again.
The place where I have noticed the biggest difference, is right in my two front teeth. You will notice in the photo below — the before braces photo, my two front teeth are crooked. One is behind the other, but in just a short month in a half, they are now side by side — something that has not happened since I was a little girl. The orthodontist told me the gap would be gone soon.
I love Damon Braces!
Here is a photo update so you can see the difference so far:
I can see such a big difference already and I cannot wait until everything is completely done. Damon Braces has definitely become a product I truly believe in.
