So, today I came to school late because I was getting my (last) baby tooth out. They first gave me laughing gas, which I can describe as being really, really tingly (in places that include your feet, chest, and head) and it makes a tissue feel like cotton candy. Well, that might’ve been the numbing stuff. When they put the tissue in to help suck up my saliva, it felt like it was melting on my tongue. Really weird.
So, in short, the tooth got pulled out. Apparently, some of the tissue in my mouth had wrapped around it. Now, there’s this piece of tissue just hanging in my mouth. I have an orthodontist appointment in two weeks, just to check and see if anything in my mouth has changed a lot. After that, my parents will schedule an appointment for me to get my braces on. Ahhh!
So, for all those braces-wearers: How does it feel to get them on? What do you eat? Was it scary, getting them on the first time? What are you not allowed to eat?
