I feel so honoured everytime I can leave school early and the security guard will open the gate for me and off I go. Yes, I left school early today because I have another dental appointment. This time is crucial
, because I have just gotten my set of braces!
Should I rejoice, or should I moan?
This bracey thing has the good side and bad side of it, just like everything else.
The good thing is that I would have a perfect set of teeth after a few years.
The bad thing is that IT IS HURTING LIKE HELL NOW
I wanna vent all my frustrations on this blog.
Not everyone needs braces, and everyone is curious on how the dentist does it.
I shall tell you then.
First, the kind dentist cleans your teeth, but only on the outer side. It needs to be cleaned because that part would not decay or whatever when the metallic 'jewels' are being glued there.
Yeah, that's the second thing the dentist will do.
After a few minutes, the 'jewels' are glued to your outer side of your teeth.
Then, the 'kind' dentist brings you the mirror and you 'admire' those bling-bling 'jewels'.
I was like, "OH MY GOD. MY TEETH IS NOW DECORATED LIKE THIS."
Then, the dentist takes out a few wire thingys and screws it to the metallic 'jewels', something like chaining it lah. You know, the choo-choo train method.
Finally, it's done.
The dentist again, asks you to 'admire' your beautiful teeth again.
I felt so weird lah, then when I walked out to my mother, she laughed because I was squeezing my lips together, so that nobody can see my braces.
My brother's reaction?
"EEEEEEE. SO UGLY! AHAHAHHA!"
But then, I would have a perfect set of teeth.
And everyone would be jealous.
Including my brother.
I wonder how my friends and classmates would react tomorrow.
I hope their reactions would not be big.
And, I'm not gonna open my mouth tomorrow.
