Follow Oak Creek's Own Jenn on Her 6-Month Smile Journey!

Jenn - Just Starting 6-Month Smile1

Jenn, an amazing member of Oak Creek Dental Care's Team and a mommy-to-be, is starting her 6-Month Smile Journey! Here's her story:

"I decided to do a 6-Month Smile because I have wanted to close the gap between my front teeth for a long time. I kept going back and forth while trying to decide whether or not to close it, only because it is hereditary and many people have said that it is a part of me. But, the older I've gotten, the more self-conscious about it I have become. And, I noticed myself covering my mouth when laughing and not wanting to smile very big because I couldn't stand how it looks.

I am currently 29 weeks pregnant, so I was a little hesitant to start the process at this time. I have heard how difficult it can be to eat with the braces on and how sore my mouth could be; but it has not been too bad, and it definitely has not stopped me from eating. Eating slower works.

The only pain meds that I can take right now are Tylenol Extra Strength, but I have only taken it when it's needed, when I can't tolerate the soreness, which is mainly at night. Other than that, the soreness is tolerable and will be well worth it in the end.

I decided to go ahead and start it now because with a baby arriving in the next few months I know there are going to be lots of pictures taken, and I want to be able to not worry about not liking my smile. I am looking forward to seeing the results after the braces because I know that it will help bring back a lot of self-confidence that I used to have, and let myself stop having to hide my smile."
