It still amazes me how 2 months have gone by already, that may not sound long to some but I feel I’m so much closer to finishing already (or I could just be nieve).
My second adjustment was much less painful. I learnt from the last and took a couple of pain killers before the appointment.
She said my lowers are pretty much aligned already so she isn’t doing much to them at the moment and she is still pushing my uppers out a bit more which I’m happy about.
They moved the wire a little and put new elastics on. One thing they are yet to do is actually change the wires, the wires are still the originals.
And of course took photos which they seem to be doing every visit.
From the photos, they already look perfect enough to me so I really don’t know why it’s still going to take another 10-12 months? I know people say the braces need to stay on for the teeth to settle but can’t the retainer do that?
It’s now 1 week since the adjustment and my teeth only hurt for the first 48 hours. I actually get disappointed now that my teeth don’t hurt, makes me think they aren’t moving.
As for the front on photos, they really don’t do the change justice do they. Still keen for my smile to get broader, not sure if that’s going to happen though, or if it’s even possible. Guess I’ll have to wait and see.
Next adjustment is in 5 weeks.
