I have a friend who decided to get braces and she was super scared to get them. When she found out that she was going to have to get them, she was horrified until she went to her get her orthodontic consultation and learned that she was scared for no reason. Her experience as she tells it was “a pleasure.” She knew she was probably going to need them but put it off until her mid twenties. Her fear was quickly quenched when she went in to get them put in.
Tori was afraid that her braces would impede her work as she is in sales and spends a lot of time on the phone and in front of clients so she needed a beautiful smile. When she got her braces, she came over to my house and we talked for about 5 minutes before I even realized she had them! They were almost transparent and she was super excited about the experience with her orthodontist that she recommended him to me. But I don’t need braces – yet…. but that’s a post for later. So what are you scary braces stories? Did you ever think you could look cute with them?
