Hi everyone!
Just had my third adjustment this week and it's just shy of 3 months and they told me my bite has gone a little weird especially on the bottom right (as I suspected). I have now been assigned elastics.. but my teeth are definitely going through a " it will get worse before it gets better" phase right now. :gavel:

The elastics are cutting into the sides of my mouth and you cant put wax on an elastic :lol:

Hope everyone is seeing more improvement than I am!

Luckily (or unluckily if you consider I had an overbite as a teenager and I probably should have had them to correct it then, what was my ortho doing?!) I've never had to use elastics. They don't look comfortable at all! Your teeth are looking really good, though.

Thanks Atrixa and swisscat.

I'm really happy about how straight my teeth are, but my bite is still off - when I bite down it only bites onto the right and the left doesn't really touch. Also, my longer front tooth keeps hitting on the bottom teeth.

The good news is, my midline is almost aligned again! :BigGrin:

I think people get sick of hearing me give little updates about my teeth as I notice every little change haha. I'll just need to post here more often.

They are looking GREAT! The whole bite thing is so strange and hard to get used to. My molars don't touch together right now just because of the brackets so I feel like a cow chewing when I try to eat solid foods.
Nutritional shakes, yogurt drinks and Ortho wax are my current BFFs!
I can see a BIG improvement and keep on posting. I'm following closely! Have a great day doll.

Hi everyone, it's been a while since my last update as I didn't really didn't feel like there was much progress. I've seen the ortho twice since my last post and have a slightly new triangle configuration of elastics which will bring the bottom jaw back a bit. My top teeth are able to overlap the bottom again *yay*! My ortho said everything is on track again so I'm very happy.

I have a gap on my bottom right as this will apparently fix the midline.

It's amazing how the different configurations of elastic can shift your whole arch isn't it? Your ortho seems to be doing a great job. I bet your midline shifts a ton before your next adjustment. Really look great! I'm jelly of your super white teeth btw :BigGrin:

Hi, istase2000!

You and I seem to have pretty similar cases in terms of age, underbite, and I have that same snaggle tooth in the opposite corner. Will start my braces later this month. It's encouraging to hear you haven't needed any teeth removed (other than wisdom, and mine are already gone.)

Been a while since I posted. Things have straightened out a lot but still tweaking some things.

I took this in the morning but this afternoon the orthodontist installed powerchains :gavel:

Wow, your teeth are so white, and I am impressed at how elegant the brackets look! At what point of your treatment did you start wearing the elastics?

Thanks guys! I had elastics just before the 3 month mark and have been wearing them almost nonstop since.. so for about 4 months. I had 2 weeks without them in that period.

Teeth are definitely far from white..the canines are quite yellow. maybe it's just the lighting hehe

Oh gosh funny you think that because after 7 months I still am not used to the feel of the brackets! They feel bulky still :-*

That's really impressive how invisible they actually look. I'm getting own ceramics on tomorrow (at 28 too!) so hope to see them looking as good as yours do!
