In fact, now that my tongue has adjusted to my uprighted molars (which is where that hook was hiding before), I barely notice my Incognito Braces again.Â Really, the only time I do is when I eat.
Remember, you can ask me questions any time!Â Here are a few of the most recent questions Iâ€™ve received:
Do you ever wish you could take your braces off?
I really forget Iâ€™m wearing them, so I donâ€™t need to take them off, nor do I want to. Â The only time I ever thought about it was after my first wire change when I was a bit surprised about the adjustment.Â I love knowing theyâ€™re always on, so theyâ€™re always working.
Do people ever notice your braces?
If anyone notices them, they donâ€™t tell me!Â When I laugh really hard, I know theyâ€™re visibleâ€¦but most people donâ€™t laugh like me!
Â Do other people see a difference in your teeth?
When you look back at pictures of where my teeth were, and where they are now, you can REALLY see the changes! Â I have a much broader smile now, and when you look in at my lower teeth, theyâ€™re more upright, so they look MUCH better.Â Would someone who hasnâ€™t seen me in 10 years notice my teeth are different? Â Probably notâ€¦but remember, I had braces on the outside as a kid.
How do you get the food out of your braces?
This is a hilarious question. Â I like it!Â So, first I use my tongue to loosen up the food a bit (some things just get stuck in your bracketsâ€¦not just bread, but lobster, ground beef, veggies, etc.). Â I basically just push it forward and backward around the wire in between each bracket. Â Then I suck it out if I can. I call this â€śseconds.â€ťÂ When I give up on it, I then use my hygiene tools to clean my braces. Â I was going to take a video to show you…but it may be too gross to watch.Â It’s not that bad to do, though!
What hygiene tools do you use the most?
For on-the-go food removal, I love my tree brush.Â It does a great job at getting the food out from between my brackets. Â I donâ€™t go anywhere (not even Germany!) without my electric toothbrush. Â I wish I had a little one to put in my purse! Â It seriously changed my life.Â Every morning and night, I use my water toothpick to rinse out any debris around my brackets.Â Youâ€™ll feel fresh and clean!
