    I got braces on today, and I have to have them for 2 years. It's 4:30, and I got them on at 11:00, and so far, they don't hurt too much.
    It was alright, a little awkward at times, but the dentist's assistant was really nice, and darn cute, so that was a plus.
    I'm having pizza for supper, so hopefully it won't hurt!

    Why did you have to have them twice? LOL they are for my teeth, hence why I said dentist in another line. LOL!
    Is the "myth" true about getting stuck together with another girl with braces? I rather not chew on barbed wire! haha

    Ohh ic. That would suck to have them twice.
    If there was an artery in my gums, I'd be dead.
    I have to admit, I don't usually floss, but they said I have to now. So I starting flossin' the teeth I can [ my teeth are messed up, they are all crooked, so there are spaces between the teeth, so theres no use flossing them] but I was flossing inbetween my 2 front teeth, and I couldn't get it through (it was REALLY tight together (the teeth)) and so I gave it more elbow grease and WAM, the floss cut my gum and I was gushing out blood. It sucked, my sink was reddish/pink from water mixed with blood! ahhh!

    Contacts are doing great. I'm trying them for a month to find out if I for sure want them. Although I have 6 months supply, so I will probably use them.

    Good luck with the braces, i opted to never get them, even though i was supposed to. Lucky for me though, my teeth have mostly straightened themselves out. :tongue1:

    I just got mine off a few months ago, they dont hurt to bad untill they start tightnening them and then your teeth just get tender for about a day. I was suprised how they could move my teeth as fast as they did ( mine were really messed up also), I am glad I got them cause I seem to have attracted a few more cute chicks:cool:
    good luck!!

    I never wanted braces, but in the end, after I get them off, I will be glad. Most of my teeth are crooked.
