I've been wanting to have braces since when I was a little kid. Not knowing the real reason why a person should wear one. And when I was a little girl, I did not take good care of my teeth. So, needless to say "Nasa huli ang pagsisisi". As of now, I am 22, and I already lost 4 molars on the lower area of my teeth. I also have yellowish teeth and had done several root canals. I have one protruded tooth (which is my front right tooth) , crossbite and the very sad thing is that I am almost near in "TMJ". Everytime I open my mouth I hear a loud clicks on my left jaw. It wasn't that painful, it's tolerable but who knows, maybe one day when I yawn, I can't close my mouth anymore. That would be a horrible thing, isn't it? At this point I decided to have braces even if I am On a very tight budget. Really! Napasubo yata ako, ay mali, napaNGANGA pala.
So last October 30, I had my braces installed. My dentist is Dr.Sixto Cruz III.
I'm glad that it just takes less than an hour to installed my upper and lower braces! And hey, it did not hurt. Well, I know once we started the treatment it will start to hurt na. (kaba kaba!).
Here's how my teeth looks like:
I have a protruded tooth at my central. I also have TMJ so I should have braces both on lower and upper areas.
Few shots that I took while the Dentist is installing the brackets:
And just after less than 1 hour, tapos na agad sya and here I am:
I am advised to visit again my dentist by next week or at the end of the month. It depends on me if when would I like to start the adjustment. Maybe I'll be back pag sweldo na ulit.
And now I can smile widely na on every pictures.
What do you think guys, do I look nice or nyan with braces?
I will post again after I visit my dentist for my first adjiustment.
