"Make the most of yourself...for that is all there is of you."- Ralph Waldo Emeson
If you don't like something about yourself, why not change it? I have always been slightly insecure of the spacing and rotated tooth in my mouth. One of the benefits of most employers include having dental insurance. This year I took advantage of my discounts and paid for braces. To some people I don't need them, but to make myself feel great about my personal image I got them! My experience so far has been better than expected. As of day 9, my teeth are feeling back to normal. For the first two days my mouth was not sore, however whenever I clenched my teeth together or attempted to chew my teeth felt as though they were going to shatter. I was extremely paranoid and uncomfortable in eating anything so I mostly drank soups, and had mashed potatoes. Brushing my teeth is more tedious and flossing became a whole mission. So far I am managing my braces and have an appointment set in a few weeks for my bottom braces.
