Turns out we were braced on the exact same day. I have innovation-c on top too. And will be getting innovation-r on bottom next month.

You're progress is amazing! You must be pleased!

I also have the "something in my teeth" look between a few of my teeth. I believe this is the 'black triangles' that people talk about!? And the ortho should at some point use IPR to reduce the space. I'm hoping so anyway.

Almost 2 months in now!! We can do it!!!


Hey, I had a look at your progress as well! your uppers look absolutely perfect already! Awesome.

I was hoping yesterday at the adjustment they would tell me that because ive had so much progress my braces may come off earlier haha.. no such luck!

First Adjustment was yesterday (May 24) - Was hardly painful.. little tender on my uppers when changing the wire - so she said that my progress was great so far, lots of movement - they added ties to 3 uppers, the ones that need a little extra help to rotate, also upgraded both wires to "Snug things up and keep things moving along". So I guess I have stronger wires? They look the same to me haha.. My teeth are a tiny bit more sore than usual but NOTHING like when first applied.. I was a bit nervous, so far so good :mrgreen:

I will post some more progress pictures in a week or so... I'm in the middle of moving so i'm too busy right now to do it!.. my bottom front 4 are completely straight though and ive noticed quite a bit of change in my upper fronts as well.

My Ortho suggested warm compresses and muscle relaxants at night to help with my jaw tenderness, I bit her unintentionally during my adjustment.. my jaw is so aggressive and unpredictable right now.. if its angry it just spasms and clamps in all kinds of directions.. zombie style! UGH..

Cant believe how fast 2 months has gone.. :) Feeling good

Oh thank you so much!! :D
It seems like they did a lot of moving with the first wire and none with the second grrrr... so pretty much no change since my last adjustment. Keen to get my bottom braces on now to see the next big changes.

I've also been hoping that I'm ahead of schedule haha, but I daren't ask my orthodontist the question because i'm afraid of him giving me the answer I don't want!

Wow! Your teeth are awesome! So much progress in 72 days! Yay! One of my front teeth is longer than the other and the technician said that the other tooth will drop down into place eventually and will be even with the other one. We seem to both be moving right along. Congrats to you!

I hope my teeth move as quickly as yours have, any improvement on my smile will be a big improvement. You sound like an absolute trooper!

I'm sure things will! The most movement seems to happen at first for everyone and then its mostly fine tuning! When's your brace date? Time really does move fast so try not to dread it too much :D
