When you think of rubber bands being put on things you think of tying things up and making rubber band "guns" NOT putting rubber bands on your TEETH!
For those of you that don't know, I am at the beginning of undergoing treatment for braces and it is only 5 days away! Today I had bands put in between my teeth and no they are not REAL rubber bands they are little rubber rings that are blue and of course circular. They are positioned between my back teeth to create a gap so it helps to make room for my overcrowded mouth and of course the braces .
At the moment they are quite uncomfortable as my mouth is not used to having little rings in it ( if you want to know what this feels like well, the only way to describe it, that it feels like having food stuck between your teeth or flossing WAY too hard!) They are on my back teeth on my bottom and top jaws of my mouth. After listening to the orthodontist for a while... I'm sure I could be a dentist! But that's not such a bad thing that she explains everything so much, at least I know what's going on in my mouth and what is about to happen.
Here is my before photo and the after one will eventually follow in a few days time...
