Week 136 of being a metal mouth

At week 136 my braces are annoying to say the least, I still love them though. My inner left cheek is raw as the wires are rubbing against it all the time. Both the top and bottom wires are much too long now. I go to the Ortho next Tuesday a.m.

Also, the space between the two molars is quite a bit now. Seems to get wider day by day. Food is always between the two of them :-(.

I got up and brushed without any issues and had a banana on my way out the door. Lunch was some rice, beans and corn. All nice and soft and thus I had no issues. I made sure I brushed after the meal.

At lunch today, I lost an elastic in my mouth, when I took it out, the person I was with noticed it, it was funny...

a guy in clear braces

I met  guy in braces today.  He had clear on the top and the bottom with metallic wires.  He also had one elastic each on the left and the right sides in a "V" shape.  He said its been 2.5 years and the thing that is the most annoying is the appointments.  He seemed happy though.
