15th Braces Tightening session
10.06.12 (15th Tightening)
hasn't been doing cleaning and scaling of teeth after i had my braces on~
it's already been about 16 months since i last clean my teeth in clinic!!!
usually, it is better to do cleaning once a year~
for braces ppl..
it is advisable to clean every half a year cos we can't clean so well
with all brackets around~~
must be my clinic got too many patient to even notice is time for teeth cleaning~
can save my $60 until now!
below is the photo after cleaning!
dunno why the metal wire is not removed~~lol.
i hate the scaling SOUND~~
but so happy to see the after effects!!
i can feel the holes in between!
after my tightening!!
love to put single colour now~
pretty pretty! haha!
if you notice CAREFULLY!
can u see the top row middle 2 tooth (men ya),
the on eon the left in the photo "looks" bigger than the one on the right??
IT IS BIGGER!!
this is why there a gap on my top row can't close it up!
so weird hor~?
so Dr Ng used a SANDPAPER to sand away some of my tooth~
to make it smaller~lol.
like last time secondary school in D&T lesson using sandpaper to file the surface~
Dr Ng said he will monitor..
if the tooth still big~
he will need to sand away more!
and one bad news~
Dr Ng show me i got "excessive gum" on my top row of teeth!
so hidden part of my teeth!
so he suggest if after my braces taken out..
i want the teeth to looks ever nicer~
can CUT away the excessive gum!
my expression was like "CUT?!"
"will pain or not?"
Dr Ng replied: "ya~abit..but can do it within a day~~"
still far from completing my braces..
at least got one more year to consider!
