It's almost 6 months now, and I'm really happy with the progress. Oh, if you're looking for stain-resistant bands, the purple ones from the previous post were really good.


Did you have curry with the purple ones on?

Yep, and some tofu with a lot of turmeric on. It stained the power chains, but not the bands, which was interesting!

(Almost) 7 months update:

Biggest gap compared to last adjustment:

I can't see any difference there, which is really frustrating. My teeth have definitely moved back, which is great, but I'm not sure how this gap is going to close.
As you can see, the ligatures have dulled quite a bit. I had a curry a week ago and it stained quite badly, but most of it seems to have brushed out.

So, another adjustment. Just got silver this time because I couldn't be bothered to choose a colour (bad day at work, might get navy next time). No wire change, but I have stronger power chains on. So strong in fact, that my ortho could barely get them on and pinged one against my lip. Twice. :roll:

Still can't see much difference from the last adjustment. I suppose i'm in that frustrating part of the journey.

That gap is still closing and the overjet has decreased nicely:

Next adjustment is on Wednesday, so hopefully they'll do something for that gap to close all the way.

Adjustment done! No new wire, and double power chains to close the gap all the way. I picked navy ligatures:

Best news ever, ortho says we're nearly done. Just some light adjustments to be made after the gap closure then that's it. He didn't give a date, but I reckon April might be a good shout. It would have been July/August otherwise :)
