Day 13 – nearly 2 weeks since the oft talked of braces were attached to my pearly whites – and, they were right. I HAVE got used to them. I mean I’m not saying that I love them or anything, I’ve not taken leave of my senses BUT now, there are more times than not when I’m not really thinking about them (does that sentence actually make sense? Have I thrown in a few double negatives right there?!)
However, there is one problem with forgetting that you have braces in your mouth…you keep getting stuck to them! As I’m not constantly working my lips round the offending bracket and wire combo anymore, things naturally become a little dry. I can be sat comfortably, quietly, my lips sealed for quite some time then….I’ll need to yawn or say something and it feels like my lips have to almost disengage with my mouth furniture. In my head I imagine imprints of my braces on the insides of my lips – such is their adherence to them.
It’s an odd sensation but a very temporary one. Hopefully it won’t lead to any surreal nightmarish dreams of Neo-style mouth glue incidents! YIKES!
