It has been two years since I began my journey with braces. As you can see from the picture above my teeth have gone through several changes. With that also came lots of pain but as the months drifted by the pain was not as intense. By intense, I mean it did not hurt as when you get them put on in the beginning. That is also not say that when you get your braces tighten it doesn't hurt. The pain becomes milder and milder as the months pass.
You can tell there has been a gradual change. My canine teeth have been pushed back. They no longer bother me as they once used too. My doctor tells me it is not much longer until they come off. I am so looking forward to that. Why you might ask? It is then that I can eat the foods that I had to stop for a while as the food would get lodged in my wires making it uncomfortable to eat them. I do not have an exact date as to when the braces are coming off. From what the doctor says it could be this summer so I will keep you posted.
