Braces 101

I have braces, as you can see from my picture. You get braces if your teeth need straightening like mine. A lot of people might tell you that it is HORRIBLE, but it's not. The only thing that is bad is that you won't be able to eat popcorn, nuts, plantain chips, hard candies (does not include lollipops), and sticky things (caramel, not reed's ginger candies). The rest if the experience is fun! It's fun because it's something new and because you are probably gonna get new colors (small colored rubber bands). And everyone will pay you special attention.

The process: 

  1. You will lay down in a chair.
  2. A sucker thing will be put in your mouth to suck saliva out.
  3. Your teeth will be  cleaned with a liquid that does not taste good, stay away from it!
  4. Your teeth will be washed off and dried with nice water and air.
  5. After your teeth are cleaned cement will be put on your back Getty second-to-last before your molars, it tastes terrible and will burn your tongue, stay away from it!
  6. Next equipment will be put near your back teeth where the cement is to dry the cement. It will give a beep beep and then it will be moved to the other side of your mouth. Close your eyes during this process.
  7. You will rinse and you're done!
Note: Stay calm throughout this whole process and you will feel no pain. Everything will be fine if you trust your orthodontist and stay calm.

  1. After reading this, I'm not sure I won't braces, but it tells me you've been really paying attention during this process. You're a trooper!
