My journey of wearing braces for five years

“A dentist for Guy’s hospital. told me I didn’t need braces and I shouldn’t bother trying to get it because my teeth were fine. Didn’t give up and finally got it from Chapel Road Orthodontist in April 2018. Literally a teeth saver.

First day with braces, it hurt so bad and my face was swollen. It wasn’t easy easy to maintain. Broken brace, swollen cheeks and gum. A lot of money spent on visiting the hygienist and orthodonist when I was in uni.

I hated eating in public or having any coloured drink. Had to wear elasstics. The orthodontist knew I was lying when I told them I wore them everyday. Legit went to an appointment without them on.

January 2023, I made the decision to take it off. I was haooy with my teeth and tired of wearing braces. Was told to wear my retainers everyday. I promised and swore to always wear them. Got my teeth whitened in Lagos because it didn’t cost me 500 pounds. It was so painful that I couldn’t complete the first session.

I was still happy with the result. Stopped wearing my retainers in May and I’m glad my teeth still looks good”
