Crest Complete Oral Care + Giveaway

Oral health has been an uphill battle for me, which I believe peaked in junior high when I had to get braces.  Many of us had to get braces, but I’m sure you didn’t make the mistake I did.  Once my braces were on, my dentist asked, “So, what color of rubberbands to you want?”.  New to the world of braces I didn’t realize there were choices and asked about my options.  The dentist pulled out this chart with about 100 different colored rubberbands – blue, pink, hot pink, white, yellow… you name it.  I looked them over when she mentioned, “And we just got in glow-in-the-dark rubberbands. I’m sure I could find them, if you’d like those.”

If I had a time machine, I would go back and force myself to pick clear.  Or even hot pink.

But, I didn’t.  I thought glow-in-the-dark sounded awesome!

So, she went to the back and found the box, then put a little glow-in-the-dark rubberband on each bracket.

What she failed to mention was that when they weren’t glowing, they were green.  I didn’t realize until my helpful Grandma told me I had something in my teeth.  But, there was nothing I could do.  I had to live with them until it was time to go back for an adjustment.

My Grandma wasn’t the only one to tell me I had something in my teeth.  Pretty much everyone I met felt the need to tell me something was in my teeth.  I barely wanted to open my mouth, let alone smile!

But, it got worse.  One day, I was sitting in History.  The teacher decided to show The Blue & The Gray.  The lights went out and one by one, heads turned in my direction.  My mouth was glowing.  I had a bright green glowing mouth of teeth.  Of course, I couldn’t see it myself, but my best friend made sure to describe it in detail between hysterical bursts of giggles.

As if junior high isn’t hard enough.  I had glowing green teeth for an entire month!

And it was my own fault.

The next month, I choose clear rubberbands.

I didn’t have braces because my ortho said I didn’t need them, but could have them if I wanted 100% straight teeth instead of 90%. What sort of doctor gives a 14-yr-old that choice!?

2 Dina S. October 19, 2011 at 8:36 AM

I don’t have braces NOW…had them as a teenager

I did for the LONGEST time… then I got them off when I was entering my senior year of high school and thought I was too cool to wear my retainer. Now… I need them again. What a waste.

I didn’t have braces as a kid, but I really wanted them!! Crazy I know. Our dentist said I didn’t need them, that my teeth would straighten out on their own. I didn’t believe him, and I was right! I still have crooked teeth! I’ve considered the InvisAlign treatment as an adult, but I wish it would’ve been taken care of 15 years ago instead!

Had braces as an adult in my 20′s, I didn’t have a choice of colors but I also had to have my jaw broken (experimental surgery) to aleviate tmj and to align my teeth. I had an overbite that caused my top teeth to tilt back and break the tops of my bottom teeth. Soooo, I have eight screws in my jaw. I was in and out of the hospital in 24 hours and eating solids within two days.

I had braces 8th-10th grade. My teeth were a MESS! One of my adult teeth hadn’t come in yet so they had to expose it and attach a bracket with a chain that went to my braces to guide it. UGH!
