I've been wanting to have my teeth braced years ago. I wished I had it when I was younger but I'm still glad I had it now. All for the name of beauty. As they say it, "tiis-ganda".
What they wanted to correct are the following:
1. Minor Crowding
Crowding on my lower teeth started upon growth of my first wisdom tooth.
2. Alignment/ Bite
My front teeth are higher and not aligned to my molars.
The first week was really difficult since I couldn't eat anything hard at all. My diet was limited to ice cream, soups, arrozcaldo, champorado and the likes. After a week I tried eating beef pepper steak but still found it difficult and time consuming. So, thanks to my braces, I can lose the extra fats without effort. ;)
And at night I drool because it gets more painful as the wire moves/ straightens when exposed to more heat (heat increases when we sleep).
