Anyone get braces later in life? Got flack as a kid in school as the one who didn't need them, didn't wear glasses or get zits...now the braces, soon the glasses (maybe) & God preserve me from pimples...if I'd known what a pain in the gum this would be, I'd have thought twice about it...I've become the super floss/super pick queen...totally ridiculous, between losing bits & pieces of edibles through the brackets, flying flotsam & jetsam, straws to minimize the sensation of lips out to there & general frustration over metallic abrasion (you'd think exterior exfoliation would have transferred sensation to interior parts...), I've been grumpy for a few months...the good thing? I have easter colored rubberbands & it hasn't deterred the wild monkey dance. Fortunately.
