Patients of all ages are self conscious when they first get their braces. It takes a few days to adjust both physically and emotionally to the look and feel of the appliances. Support and understanding from family and friends goes a long way the first few weeks to help patients adapt both physically and emotionally, especially with adolescents and teens already insecure with most aspects of their lives.More on TLC Works Best During the First Few Days Wearing Braces
Congratulations to Stephen and Angela for sharing your story with us. We hope you enjoy dinner on us. The following is one of the winning entries to our recent Coolsmiles “Tell Us A Sweetheart Story” contest that ended on Valentines Day.
I decided to go to Italy for a semester so I could learn more about my heritage. My wife, a native of Italy was living in the U.S., but was also studying in Italy for a semester. As it turns out, on the plane, she was sitting in front of me during the seven plus hour flight. She went to use the bathroom and when she returned, her friend had laid down on her seat and fell asleep. It seemed like the gentlemanly thing to do, so I offered my seat. We began to talk and discovered that we would be attending the same university in Siena and Florence. We spent the next four months enjoying romantic scenery, language and a relationship. Today we have four children and continue to have that same feeling that began on our trip to Italy.
