Today, the second part of the Wire hits. In this note I would like to raise a few issues that I was looking for myself before putting on the camera.
First of all, pain. It is not at all a myth that after putting on a fixed appliance you feel pain. However, this issue is individual and not everyone can feel it the same. I, as my pain threshold is very low, felt it very strongly. Before the first 3 days, I thought I would be screaming in pain. Painkillers have become my friends, and Dentinox N teething gel for toddlers has also helped a lot, so it makes you feel bad.
Sachol and orthodontic wax also helpthat sticks to the locks that hook. And at the beginning the locks hook, oh hook ... I for the first week probably used 2 or 3 wax tube ...
As you probably guessed it wasn't easy with food. For 2 weeks I ate only mush and was furious. Now it's much better and I can eat almost anything, except for my beloved nuts (only pine nuts are involved), as well as all kinds of rusks, candies. I also skip wide fudges, chewing gums, plums in chocolate and chocolate bars such as snicers, mars or even highlanders (they are very thick and I will not bite them: P) I will not bite a roll, I will not bite any, so I break cut it into smaller pieces.
I also have a problem with bread crusts, which are still a challenge for me. I rather don't eat them. To this day I will not bite lettuce or cocktail tomatoes, but a friend who also wears a camera said that she had only recently eaten a salad (and the camera has worn it longer than I do), this is also probably normal. In general, at the beginning of the food causes a lot of trouble, in the first days there is no question of normal food, soup-creams, or mushy, gerberas, etc. are recommended.
The things that I can eat and which cause problems are: poppy seeds, spinach, mushrooms, because they enter the camera and it is difficult to get rid of them.
The myth is that at aesthetic apparatus you can't eat beets. I eat, but immediately after eating I go rinse my mouth, and after 15 minutes after eating I go to brush my teeth. The issue of hygiene with a fixed appliance will be discussed in detail in the next note.
The camera does not bother you in everyday life, you just have to remember to have a toothbrush and toothpaste with you and brush your teeth at least once a day (after a meal).
Many girls are worried about kissing with the camera. The camera doesn't hook or anything. You can kiss at will! 😉
