Why Braces are Annoying

Lets start by saying “Why?” Who invented these torture devices you put on your teeth known as braces? Who thought it was a good idea to put 13 year olds in this kind of pain?

Braces, as people know, are supposed to straighten your teeth. Braces are succesful at that, but it comes at a cost. Food getting stuck, rubber bands, the throbbing pain in your teeth, WHY?!?!

The worst part is the dentist appointments. First of all, orthodontist appointments take twice as long as regular dentist appointments, which takes up twice as much of my day than usual. The second thing is the food limitations. Your orthodontist might tell you “No soda, no popcorn, no bubblegum…” You know how that translates in my head? “Dont eat any of the foods you’ve ever liked in your life.” With that being said, I don’t really pay attention to those limitations. I eat popcorn at the movies. I drink soda when we go out to eat (not all the time), I chew bubblegum during baseball practices and games. And guess what, nothing’s happened. Yet.

Those are my reasons why braces are annoying. What are some of your reasons? I know you have multiple.
