Welcome to the inner-workings of my mind

Many people have to go to dentists for little things like cleaning and oral consultations and big things like braces, teeth extractions and cavity fillings. I myself have endured all of those things. I have overcrowding, teeth that don’t grow in for at least  a year and eye teeth. That may seem like a lot of dental problems… that’s because it is. I have been through a lot of dental appointments and they haven’t been all great.  But the dentist’s personalized mission is: to fix my mouth and so I can have a mouth I can smile and be proud of.

Braces: Those dental appliances to help create a better smile. I have had braces twice. Once in grade 3 and 4.  Those braces weren’t for straightening though.  When I had braces that time, it was to get the tooth that wouldn’t grow in to come down. Of course, I couldn’t have things like jujubes, gummies, granola bars, gum , so on and so on and so on and so on.  I was kinda happy about it because I couldn’t stand having a gap where the tooth was not coming down.  When I had braces the first time I was fine because I knew the people who would see it well enough to know they would be nice to me.  

This past Friday, I went to the dentist in Manitoba for braces. Living in a small rural town, one of the things I don’t like is sometimes you have to drive a long time to get to a special doctor.  We live close to the border and we heard this dentist was good.  It was almost the same distance to Regina.

For the next 18 months, I will have to pass on sticky, chewy, awesome, sweet things. It takes me longer to floss. I am not thrilled but I get why.

Have you had to go through something like I did? If you did… comment. I’d like to know I am not the only one 🙂



It might be a bad drawing but… it’s braces on teeth

  1. That doesn’t sound like fun! I have braces, but I still eat everything I am not supposed to. Turns out, gum doesn’t stick to the brackets! On the other hand, if you have a very crunchy and stale chip, you risk detaching the wire… :/ Whoops… MY dentist told me that if you have braces, you only have to floss once a month because of the special way you brush your teeth and the small utensils that you use to de-plaquify them 🙂 Hope the time passes quickly, you will get used to them !!!
