Today is the Smile distractor-removalday!
5 months after the operation.
I'm nervous :?

Not much going on since my last post. No discomfort or pain.
I'm figuring out how to keep my teeth stainfree, and it's getting better I think.

Smile distractor out!
It wasn't so bad as I tought. They removed only the 'bar' but not the screws that kept the bar in place.
They will remove the screws during my next operation.
I had anesthesia in the roof of my mouth, because he gave it so quick it didn't hurt as much.
I had some pain after but after a half an hour it was gone, no painkillers needed.

I will need surgery to move my upper jaw more to the left, this will fix my midline and my bite. They will also tilt it a bit inwards because of my overbite.
Lower jaw is going to move a little forward.

Surgeon talked about the operation to be planned for november or december, if my ortho agrees.

I got my braces at 34 (10 months ago now) was the best decision I have ever made! I never used to smile because I was so embarrsed, now I cant stop :D I don't even notice the braces. Congratulations on making the brave step and wish you all the best on your journey.

Thanks! I wish you all the best too :D

Small update.
Last week I had spacers again, between my back molars wich were 'free' of brackets/bands untill yesterday.
I have cemented bands placed on my back molars now. It hurts :lol:
I was getting so comfy with my braces that I forgot that they could hurt. Didn't sleep so great last night and this morning I took a painkiller.
It will get better in a few days.
He also changed my wires for a thinner one.

Next app is in four weeks, not sure what they will be doing but i'm guessing a wire replacement.

After that I can start to count down to my holiday! Jeeeeeej. :jump:
I wanted to wait untill I got my expander out to plan a holiday.

Update, had my last app the 2nd of october.

Got new wires upper and lower.
It was a relief getting my last wires out, they felt ubertight and also the wire started to poke in my cheek.
Had a lot of discomfort the weeks before my last app.

Now everthing is fine, no pain or such. :)

A few days ago I was eating a banana and i saw my upper front teethmarks in it. It was a nice arch/line shaped form. No more wonkey weird 90 degree angle.
I was so happy, i showed my boyfriend :lol:

Next app is the end of november, going on holiday first.
Then in december the first app with the surgeon for my double jawsurgery.

Back from vacation and had my last app the 20th.
Upper wire was changed for a thicker one.
I have developed a gap in my lower arch, so I got a powerchain on my lower wire now.

I had no problems on vacation with my braces. :jump:
I did bought a full face mask for snorkeling so I didn't have to bite down on a snorkel. Worked great!
