Yesterday I got my expanders on they kind of hurt, but i am already getting use to them. If you don`t know what expanders are, they are this little rubber rings that are really small, and they put them between your last tooth, just to create space for the bracket. The lady that put the expanders in my mouth she said, " They look like donuts", I was like Okayyyyy. Anyway i get my braces on December 2 which is in 7 days, I am only getting my top braces for now, but in 6 months after I get my braces i am getting my bottom set! I am actually excited, the colours i am going to get are light blue and neon green, those two colours are my absolute favourite!
