There are a few people that know this already…but I’m getting braces. I’m excited, but nervous at the same time. This is sort of a personal issue for me, but my crowded teeth have always bothered me, and finally at the age of 29 I’m going to do it. I’m posting today because this afternoon I’m taking the first “real” steps in the process. Today is the day that I’m having two teeth extracted. Then on Thursday as far as I know the wires and bands will be applied. I probably won’t feel so hot for a few days, so everyone please say a little prayer for me if you don’t mind. And no, those aren’t my teeth in the photo.
