Help Me Smile Again!

Update posted by Chantelle Buys On Apr 11, 2017

I’ve gone to get my braces checked and I was told that my teeth’s 100% and that the braces are only now keeping it in line until I can get my operation which is really good news for me. Only thing is that I now have to wait until I could go for my operation.

I hope that it won’t be to long because I’m looking forward to the day that I can eat without worrying about breaking the braces off.

I got some good news on the 12th of December when I went to get my braces changed.

It was the last time that they would be changed and this time they aren't even tight.

I couldn't believe my ears!

The doctor said that when I go back again in February, he would be taking x-rays and then we would be going upstairs to the professor. He'll be the one to decide as to what to do about my jaws and hopefully then I'll get my operation date. :P

I got my braces in March and I'm already nearing the end of my braces journey. :-)

In February I'll have my braces for 11months and I thought that it was going to be 18months.

Each time my braces got changed, it became even harder to eat. Now it's even worse, I can only bite on the right side of my mouth unless I move my jaws around a bit to bite on both sides.

When the doctor asked me if I was able to bite, I told him that each time he changed my braces, it becomes more of a challenge to eat. I even told him that I've caught myself biting down onto my bridges at the bottom and that so far, I haven't bitten them off, yet. It does give me a scare though when I suddenly wake up and catch myself biting my bridges or the mettle parts holding the ends in place.

The doctor just laughed every time and tells me that it means that I'm on an even better diet. (^^^)

Um, at least when the operation date comes, I won't end up giving myself a heart attack each time waking up.

The reason why I get a scare is because we don't have a Orthodontist in town who could quickly fix my braces again if I do manage to bite them off. Why the hell I'm doing that lately, I really don't know.

The doctor did tell me that I'll stop doing that when everything's over and done with, that it's because my body doesn't like the foreign objects and so it's just taking a bit of revenge on the braces for torturing it so much.

At least it's not me trying to bite it off by thinking of doing it. So, only 2more months of figuring out of how to go about eating my food and worrying about when I'll be breaking them off before I'm fully awake to stop myself. :D

I still can't believe that the end's near! o/

Finally got my braces on the 9th of March and I'll have to get them

changed again on the 16th of May.

Thank you to everyone who's helping me raise money for my braces. You
have no idea how much it means to me.

After visiting the doctor on the 12th of January, I was told that it

would be the best if I got my braces before my operation. The doctor
wants my teeth to be in line before a decision could be made. I was
told that when my teeth's in line, the doctor would be able to see if
both or only one of my jaws should be moved.

I'll have to have the braces on for two to three years. I have to
travel back and forth once every month from Victoria West to Cape town
with the Greyhound bus, as well as paying someone to fetch me from the
bus stop and drive me to the hospital and back again. From Victoria
West to Cape Town it takes seven hours via car or bus and back again.

My first appointment is on the second of March and the second
appointment is on the seventh of March. After that, I'll be traveling
to Cape Town once every month to get my braces checked.

Any help is welcomed and will mean so much to me.
