Cloudy skies greeted me on my first brace adjustment day. While I was surprised to learn the braces hadn't begun working yet, my dentist explained the past month was for my teeth to adapt. Though I didn't see changes then, it seems this step was necessary. Now, after the tightening, I can definitely feel the pressure on my teeth. It's an unusual feeling, and it came along with this urge to get rid of them. I hope this discomfort will fade with time.
