Braces update - 4 months

So it's been 4 months... up until recently if felt time was flying by (braces-wise) and it probably felt that way because most of the changes happened in the first 3 months or so and I've add an adjustment roughly once a month. Then from about 2 weeks before my last appointment, things seem to have slowed down. I guess because my next appointment is 8 weeks after the last (so about 4 weeks away) and not much has changed... I mentioned the 2 bottom teeth that refused to straighten out. Well, they have pretty much straightened out now... and I wasn't even looking :P. But I have new gaps (in addition to the big ones where I had the extractions) around to 4 teeth in the middle.

Here are so photos of the culprits:

I new have started to feel 2 quite contrasting feelings about the braces: as grateful as I am for this treatment and as much as I wanted (and still want) to do it, I'm starting to not like them very much and can't wait to get this all over with. The again, I'm surprised I only started to feel this way now, as I'm normally quite impatient... Anyway, like anything in life there are always ups and downs, and although I'm probably on a downer, I don't regret it and I would still do it if I was to make the same decision today (as in, to start the treatment) I would. Right now I just wish it didn't have to take so long...

Anyway, forward we move...

  1. Wow! what a difference I'm almost tempted to get braces myself. I don't know if I can handle it though!
