KAYLA GETS BRACES! | SEE HOW BRACES ARE DONE | We Are The Davises


(camera shutter clicks) – [Technician] Good job. (high energy rock music) – Hey everyone! It is Connie, from We Are the Davises, and today I have to go
pick up Kayla from school, and take her to an
orthodontist consultation. She’s already had phase one braces, and she is due for phase
two, so we’re gonna go and take you guys with us and see what they say, and if she is ready or not. – Hello everybody, it’s
Kayla and I am in the car. Tyler’s not here because my mom just took me out of school
’cause I’m getting braces. – We’re gonna see if you’re
gonna be ready for braces. They gotta check your mouth and make sure that you can even get them. – Well, last time they said
that I had to get braces soon, so I’m pretty sure they’re
gonna say I need braces. – [Connie] Comment below! Do you think she’s gonna get braces? – (laughs) I’m gonna get braces, okay. Basically, the whole reason why we’re here is it was gonna happen at some point, but the reason why it’s happening now and not later is because
I lost my retainer, and so my mom’s just
like, “Okay, you have to “get braces anyways, so
we’ll just set you up “an appointment, and then
if we find your retainer, “then that’s great and if we don’t, “then she’s gonna get braces.” So, I’m getting braces. – [Connie] Alright, so
they’re going to take Kayla back here to do some x-rays and photos. – Well, I’m gonna take
a picture right now. Mommy can sit there,
Kayla can stand right here ’cause that’s gonna be our
backdrop for the photos, so let me go get the camera, okay? – [Connie] It’s a photoshoot, yeah! – I used to be a model, you know? – [Connie] Yes. – I took one model class and I failed it. – [Connie] You did not fail. – It was an okay grade,
but I didn’t like it. It was like runway walks,
and they were like, I just did the pose that
they used for examples. And they were like “Duh, duh, uh,” so I just like, they were
like this or something, so I’d had cheerleading at
the time with the pompoms, so I pretended like I was a cheerleader. I was like … (laughs) I like failed, everyone was like, “What?” (laughs) – [Orthodontist] Just wanna
get your lips out of the way, so can you hold this for me
’cause I’m gonna put a … Hold it with this hand. – Okay. – [Orthodontist] Yeah, ’cause
I’m gonna go get a mirror and I’m gonna put it in
your mouth to get that arch. (camera shutter clicks) I’m gonna do it one more time, okay? There we go, but nice and big. (camera shutter clicks) Good job! Now down all the way, yeah
this one’s fogging up. Good, just don’t breathe.
(camera shutter clicks) Okay, bite down all the way. – [Connie] Oh wow, look at that. – [Orthodontist] Bite down
all the way and don’t breathe. – [Connie] Look at that mirror, see how they see that, that’s crazy, huh? – Yeah, I’m gonna lower
this to your height. Alright, so stay right there. Back up ’cause I’m gonna lower it. (machine beeps) Perfect, I’m gonna lower you just a little tad so your not dripping in it. Good ’cause we want your
neck to kind of come … Good, so we have these little
handle bars right here. Put you in place, so the machine is gonna rotate around you one time. Just keep biting down
the whole time, okay? And don’t move, and can
you stick your tongue on the roof of your mouth? Just leave it there the whole time, okay? Perfect. Good job! Happy birthday. – [Connie] How sweet, what
a loving dentist office. – Yay! – [Connie] Celebrating for your birthday, that’s so nice, thank you! – Yay. – [Connie] Very cool. – I’ve got balloons. – [Connie] So for those
of you who have not seen us come here, this
is the Village Dentist and they are located in St. Augustine, the Village Dentist. – And they are so nice. – [Connie] And they have
been wonderful with Kayla, haven’t they?
– Yes, they gave me balloons. – [Connie] Yes, and
they helped you get over fears that you had and everything. Hi, morning. – How are you? – [Connie] Good. Are you the orthodontist? – [Orthodontist] Yes, ma’am. – [Connie] Wowee, look
it, so these are x-rays, or these are the pictures of
her teeth, and her canines were sticking out, and that’s
what the x-rays look like. – Okay, since we have the x-ray out, this is a impacted tooth we call it. – [Connie] Okay, yes, so does
that create pain eventually – Problems.
– … if you don’t correct? – All the problems almost include pain. This is also impacted,
and this is impacted. – [Connie] Alright, you
said you were having some aches back there occasionally. Why are you excited Kayla? – I don’t know. – [Orthodontist] She
wants to fix her teeth. – [Connie] Yeah, she
wants them to be straight. She said she liked the way they
looked when she had ’em on. – [Orthodontist] Okay, here. So, the treatment is gonna be one year in braces, upper and lower. – [Connie] One year Kayla,
that’s it, sounds good. – [Orthodontist] Nice to meet you. – You too, thank you so much.
– If you have any more questions for me, I’ll
be around the phone. – Thank you, Doctor?
– Gaby Bahri. – [Connie] Gaby, nice to meet you. – Okay, so I’m just gonna go
over a couple things with you. Okay, this is mainly for you ’cause you are gonna be the
one wearing the braces. – [Connie] What is your name? – My name is Jen. – [Connie] Hi Jen, nice to meet you. – Nice to meet you guys,
okay so the first step we do is take impressions of your teeth. What that entails is we
take molds of your teeth and that way we can know what your teeth are like before we get started, okay. Again, it doesn’t hurt,
it’s very, very easy, okay? The second step is actually placing the braces on your teeth. Now that also is very, very simple. What the orthodontic technician does is she isolates your teeth,
and she gets your teeth ready for the braces, which means that she cleans the surface of your tooth, she rinses it, she’s
dries it real, real well, and then she places a
bracket on your tooth. It’s just like placing
stickers on your hand. Have you ever put a sticker
on your hand before? Okay, so what do you do? You make sure that your
hand’s real clean, right? And then you gotta dry it
real, real, real well, right? And then you put the sticker on. Well, these brackets are actually like stickers for your teeth, okay? Now the hardest part of having the braces is actually getting used to
them being on your teeth. That takes about two weeks, okay? Again, you just gotta make sure that you kind of just get used to them,
and then you gotta make sure that you are careful
with what you eat, okay? You can have ice cream, you can have macaroni and cheese,
and you can have pizza. If we told our patients they
couldn’t have those things you guys would run out the door, okay? You can have pizza, you got to be careful for the crust, can’t have the crust. And the orthodontic technician
will give you a food list to go by, you just gotta
be careful what you eat as far a hard, chewy, or sticky. Can I move along quickly on my end, we can possibly start even today. – [Connie] Okay, well
that would be awesome. Can you believe if you’d get braces today? – [Technician] (mumbles)
these are gonna hold you open and dry for me, like that. So you gonna be like this the whole time, so other than that I’m gonna take a couple different liquids,
paint ’em all over your teeth, I’m gonna rinse them out,
dry a lot of air and water, and then we’ll place the brackets on, Dr. Bahri will come over,
maybe he’ll move them around and place them where he
wants them to be placed, and then we’ll use this
light to make everything … the glue stick, okay? Super, super easy, okay. – [Connie] How long does it
normally take to do braces? – [Technician] For top and
bottom, about 40 minutes, but we’re only doing the upper today, so it should be about 25 minutes or so. – [Connie] Oh, okay. – [Technician] Very, very easy. – [Connie] Just the uppers today, huh? – [Technician] She’s
gonna come back in about a couple weeks, and then
we’ll put the lowers on. – [Connie] Okay. – [Technician] Okay, let’s get started. (lighthearted guitar music) Open big again, just rinsing you out. – [Connie] So now they’ve
got all the brackets on, and they’re getting ready to put the wire on and the rubber bands. What color? – I don’t know. – [Technician] I will let
her choose in a second. – [Connie] You can choose right now. – I don’t know what colors they have. – [Technician] All of these. – [Connie] Do we need to
have the glasses on now? – [Technician] Nope, she’s done with that. – [Connie] Can the DFF
see the real Kayla Davis? Oh my gosh, look at those. – I wanna see, oh my gosh. I look so weird. I look like I have a ton of cavities. – [Connie] Yeah, those glasses
left a little impression that’ll go away in a minute. – Now I have to figure out which colors. – [Connie] What colors? What colors would you guys pick? Comment below what your favorite color is. – Maybe I should do Zone
colors, that’d be cool. I kinda like this color. – [Connie] I do, too. – Should I do that?
– That’s blue… It’ll match your shoes, too. – What other colors? Should I just do that
color, or other colors? – [Connie] Is that the Zone color, or is that the Zone color? – This is the Zone colors so I could do this with this and this on. – [Connie] This would be her cheer color. – But then, I’d have black
and white, too on my teeth. – [Connie] I don’t think you want black. – Yeah, that’s part of this– – [Connie] Don’t the
white bands turn yellow? – [Technician] Yeah, they do. – [Connie] Don’t do white. – I kind of like these two,
the bright green and the teal. – [Connie] Green (shutters). What’s the most popular one? – [Technician] For kids, teal. – [Connie] Teal, yeah,
that’s the cool one. – I like the bright green and the teal. – [Connie] Do they try to mix ’em? – [Technician] Yeah, she can get two. – Or the bright pink. – [Technician] That’s
the bright pink and teal. – [Connie] Pink and teal,
that sounds cool, do that. – Yeah, let’s do it, the
bright pink and teal. – [Technician] Alright,
I’ll be right back, okay? So, I left them a little
long in the back on purpose, I will cut them at the end I promise. Nothing should hurt, okay? – [Connie] A lot
straighter, I remember that. The wire being jaggedy
the first couple weeks, and then they move a lot. – Yep, okay so now, this is yours. – Thank you. – I want to go over some home
care instructions now, okay? You’re gonna take care of
these braces as you would your normal teeth, but with brushing you wanna focus on getting under the bracket
and on top of the bracket because that’s where the plaque
is gonna cake up the most. So, you’re gonna go in
circular motions like this, go under like that and over, okay? So much difficult doing it on a … – [Kayla] Model? – Yeah, okay so you’re gonna go under, pull it through, pull one
side through all the way, then take it off the threader, then you’ll be able to
wrap it around your fingers and floss like normal, so
each tooth you’re gonna have to re-thread and re-loop it through, okay? I gave you some wax. This is gonna help with that tooth. It’s poking you maybe if you
have a bracket in the front that’s rubbing you the wrong way and it might get raw in that area. What this’ll do will protect that area from getting irritated,
but I wanna let you know because I have braces, try
not to get too dependent on this stuff because
you’ll want it all the time. Over time, your mouth will adjust to having the braces in your mouth. The tissues will toughen up,
but if that ever does happen you can also use warm salt
water since that’s what I use. Gargle like the first couple
days, and it should go away. But, if it doesn’t,
use this and to call us and to let us know, so we can
come take a look at it, okay? – [Connie] Alright, so there’s the uppers. – Yay. – [Connie] Lowers will be
in a couple weeks, yeah. – This is like, it’s weird for me. Usually I’m not used to all this, so my lip keeps getting stuck up on my braces when I smile. – [Connie] You guys did really good. We’re impressed, thank you. – Thank you.
– Thanks. – [Connie] Thank you
so much, alright girl. You ready for some lunch? – Yeah. – [Connie] Okay, let’s go eat. – So, we are in the car
and this is going to be the end of the video since
we’ve already vlogged a lot, so I want you guys to comment down below what colors would you
choose for your braces. Comment down below, we love
to hear what you have to say, and until next time, bye!
