The thing about braces is…

Earlier this week I had my braces fitted. I’ve been waiting to have them fitted for a while  now because my teeth are pretty wonky at the front due to being born with a cleft lip and palate, this should hopefully be the second to last part of cleft intervention I should need. It has taken quite a while for my braces to be fitted because I hadn’t, until recently, lost all my baby teeth which delayed the process considerably and was actually quite frustrating becase I just wanted it over and done with…

The main reasons why I wanted braces was because I am very self-conscious of my teeth, I won’t smile in any picture taken of me because it generally shows how wonky my front teeth are and I really hate that. I did try and smile in some pictures while we were on holiday.

Some of the pictures turned out reasonably well and then there were some that I never wanted to look at again. I’m hoping that my braces will change the way that I view my teeth and give me some extra confidence in myself.
