I was so surprised at how quick and painless the whole operation was. When I had braces many many years ago. I had the ones you could take out with the plastic roof. When ever mine were fitted or tighten I would come home with my gums bleeding and spend the day with cotton wool in my cheeks.
Izzy has a fixed top row only (train tracks) and has no rubbing on her gums or lips which is fantastic.
As I suspected eating has been a bit of a chore. Lunch was soup and buttered bread, of which the bread got left after one nibble and a few spoons of soup were consumed. I think its the whole nervousness of them breaking thats bothering her.
|new pink braces!|
But on the whole, apart from a few aches (thank you calpol) she is doing really well, and is actually out playing this afternoon!
Any readers out there that have had kids that have gone through the same, any words of wisdom would be gratefully received!
