As promissed (and as hard as it is for me to make these public), below are some pictures of the progress of the ortho treatment so far (please try to ignore the metal fillings...).
The photos on the left were taken within the first week after the braces were fitted and the ones on the right the day before the 1st adjustment, so about 3-4 weeks apart.
I've marked out in red the more noticeable changes (for me, anyway). It's quite amazing really, although it might appear on the photos that these are small changes, I find these are significant for the amount of time elapsed.
Now, despite the fact that there is very little or no pain, I still see changes pretty much every day. You go, teeth!
