I really hate rubber bands – as I move in to my last few months of using the metal thing (according to the doctor lah), I would need to wear rubber bands on my front tooth so that it will pull the top teeth down. Its just super annoying as I won’t be able to open my mouth to yawn nor eat anything while having the bands. Drinking water is always quite a challenge. Lucky for me, I only need to use the bands at night. I bet you if it was at some other place, i definitely will need to use 24hrs a day. Well – i need to be discipline and use it daily so that I can quickly get it over and done with! And remove the braces totally. In the next few weeks – it’ll be two years and i must say it has been very very long!
