My Experience With Braces // Mi Experiencia Con Brackets



So, a few days ago I went to my dentist to have my braces off, and I couldn't be more happy. I've them for a year and nine months but for me it was like a decade haha. I have all different kind of orthodontics since I was about seven, so we are allowed to say that the dentist is kind of my second home. 
This experience taught me a valuable lesson: time heals pain. But for real, it does. Every month for almost two years I left the dentist in so much pain, and I knew that for the next week I could barely eat anything that was solid. Of course not everything was bad! Seeing my teeth and my jaw changing was really cool, and I can assure you (if you are thinking about having braces or if you already have them) it's totally worth it. 
I'm not really sure if too many people went through this, but my below teeth needed space to keep doing the treatment, so I have "surgery" and they remove two of them. The second one didn't hurt because of course I had anesthesia, but when they remove the first it didn't quite work that well and it hurt a looooot. 
When they put the braces on it doesn't hurt, it's kind of long but after a few days you get used to having them, and when they take off it does hurt but just a little, and it ends really fast. The sensation after they take them off is suuuper weird, I felt like I didn't have any teeth haha, but the feeling is kinda cool too. And you can't stop looking at them. 
One of my main worries while I have the braces on was that I was using a whitening toothpaste and I kept thinking that I was going to have a yellow mark in my teeth but that doesn't happened! They were really white so that was great too. I have to say, against my wishes that using too much of that toothpaste is not recommended, just so you know. 
The night braces that I have to use now hurts a little at first but like I said above, the pain stopped after a week or so. 
Another thing that surprised me was that not many people realized that I didn't have braces anymore. And it was kind of disappointing because through all the time that I have them I was sooo conscious about how people treated me or saw me because of them. I thought that they made me ugly (and I know how superficial that sounds, but I couldn't stop thinking about it). 
Overall, it's not that bad at all. If you have a great dentist doing the job, then you can be calm because even though you'll have to tolerate the pain, the pressure when they adjust the braces, and maybe having to take extra care of your teeth, it's for your health (among aesthetic issues) and you'll be really happy with the result!
If you guys have any question, I'd love to answer them down below!







Hace unos días fui al dentista a que me saquen los brackets, y no puedo estar más feliiz. Los tuve por un año y nueve meses, pero para mi fue como si los hubiese tenido por un década jajaj. Desde que tengo mas o menos siete años tuve ortodoncia, así que puedo decir que la sala del dentista es prácticamente mi segunda casa. La razón por la cual me puse los brackets a los 18 fue porque cuando tenia alrededor de 12 anos me canse de ir al dentista y de tener siempre distintos aparatos en mi boca, así que cuando después de 4 años volví a ver como estaban los dientes, el proceso fue largo. Primero me pusieron unas gomas para hacer espacio y más tarde una especie de expansor para preparar mis dientes para los brackets. Esta experiencia me enseño una lección muy valiosa: el tiempo cura el dolor. Suena a un chiste, pero realmente lo hace. Todos los meses por casi dos años salió del dentista con muchisimo dolor, y sabía que por la próxima semana no iba a poder comer nada que fuese muy duro o súper solido. Obviamente no todo fue malo, ver mis dientes y mi pera cambiar y “evolucionar” fue increíble. Tuve que usar brackets porque mordía mal (los dientes de abajo estaban por delante de los de arriba).


No se si muchos pasaron por esto, pero mis dientes de abajo necesitaban espacio para poder seguir haciendo el tratamiento, entonces tuvieron que “operarme” y sacarme dos. El segundo no me dolió y ni me di cuenta que me lo estaba sacando hasta que me lo dijo, porque obviamente usaron anestesia. Pero con el primero no paso lo mismo porque la anestesia, aunque me la pusieron dos veces, no funciono muy bien y creo que nunca nada me dolió tanto.  
Cuando me pusieron los brackets no me dolió para nada, solo que es un poco largo y al principio tenes las encías medias lastimadas, pero con los días se va y uno se acostumbra. Cuando me los sacaron se sintió suuuper raro, sentí que no tenia dientes pero a la vez la sensación esta buena, es nueva y no podes parar de mirarte los dientes en cualquier espejo. 
Una de mis mayores preocupaciones mientras los tuve fue que no mucha gente se dio cuenta que me los habían sacado. Y fue un poco decepcionante porque durante todo el tiempo que los tuve estuve súper insegura con como la gente me miraba o trataba, sentía que hasta a veces creían que era mas chica y me jugaban en contra porque no me tomaban en serio. También creí por un tiempo que me hacían mas fea, y se cuan superficial suena eso pero no podía parar de pensarlo.

Resumiendo, no es una mala experiencia y no es para tanto (aunque tal vez lo haya pintado un poco malo). Si tenes un buen dentista haciendo el trabajo, entonces podes estar tranquila de que todo va a salir bien porque aunque tengas que aguantar un poco de dolor, la presión que sentis cuando te ajustan los brackets y tal vez tengas que cuidar un poco mas de tus dientes, es por tu salud (más allá de las necesidades estéticas que tengan otras personas) y vas a estar muy feliz con el resultado!
pd: lo que les re recomiendo es usar esos palitos para sus encías, mas si tienden a inflamarse, porque son súper buenos para la salud de tus dientes y no cuesta nada hacerlo.
Si tienen alguna pregunta, me encantaría responderla en los comentarios abajo!

  31. It is vital in these days to have a social media presence. Many businesses overlook this necessity for future growth. It may be more important than putting in more funding. Pricing properly is key, of course. But investing more is not always the best option. Sometimes it’s better to cut unnecessary costs.
