Braces update - 7 weeks

Once again, I'm posting photos of my mouth which may affect some of you. If you think that'll be the case, look away NOW!

Amazing changes (from my perspective anyway)! This time I didn't draw any red circles, as I think the photos speak for themselves.

The photos on the left were taken 3 weeks ago, just before the 1st adjustment and the ones on the right today. You'll notice of the last photo, that the progress of the bottom teeth is a bit slower (my ortho told me that might be the case), but even so, you might notice subtle changes. The major and more obvious change is on the top arch (yay!!!).

My bite feels strange, which is to be expected as some teeth are in new positions. I can't completely bite together (the photo on the right of the first lot show me trying to bite together, whereas on the one on the left I'm deliberately keeping by top and bottom teeth slightly apart)

My next adjustment is in 2 weeks, when a thicker wire will be fitted (gulp!) at least on the top arch, if not on both. I can't believe how quickly time is passing by and the changes are happening. Good, the quicker the progress, the quicker I'll get to the end of it!

  1. Who-ho! You can indeed see the changes =)

    When you notice, it's time to take the braces off. =)
