Brace Face: Here we go again...Tray 1 of 14

Yesterday I had my appointment to get my new set of trays and get the buttons back on my teeth. It was awful. I am miserable.

I don't know if I blocked out the process from the first time, but this seemed much, much worse. First they put some weird stuff in my mouth that tasted seriously AWFUL. It was like a mix of battery acid and pickle juice. It was so so terrible that I'm gagging right now just thinking of it.

Then they placed the buttons, and then like "molded" them to my teeth. This included some sort of tool that was quite hot, and it actually burned my lip on one side. That's fun.

Then, of course, sliding the tight-as-hell trays on was terrible.

When I got home, I needed to get and taking my trays out was terrible. Seriously terrible. The buttons on my teeth feel terrible, but of course I think I had just gotten used to a button-free life.

I do remember the first few days from my first set of trays, and I remember feeling like this whole thing was a mistake and it wasn't going to work for me. I got over that in a day or two, so I'm hoping that happens again.

If I did the math right, I will be done with this phase on August 1.
