I had an adjustment on June 28th (3 weeks early yahhh!) - My jaw is still tight and painful and spastic so opening my mouth for anything for any length of time is quite distressing so it's not fun to have an adjustment at all for me. They changed out my wires and upgraded to square.. I think that's good? haha.. I feel like ive seen people excited over this!.. My ortho is quite impressed with my teeth movement so far -- Biggest news however is....
NO MORE BITE PLATE!!!! Woohoo - I have turbos now on my upper teeth so I still cant close my mouth completely but no more bite plate yah!
Thank goodness though because I had a dream that I was choking on a mini skateboard and woke up and I was choking on my bite plate! ha! it was getting kind of loose..
My molars were very very very sore after the adjustment, back to mooshy food, I heard the ortho talking about how the new wires were really going to "activate" certain teeth and she wasn't kidding - I was miserable again for a day or two.. still sore now but not bad..
I've developed some awful looking gaps between some of my teeth - which I guess is good for movement seeing as I was so overcrowded but I'm starting to look odd. Next adjustment is on August 10th, again 2-3 weeks ahead of what ortho recommended due to faster movement, so hopefully with all these speedy adjustments my time frame will slowly start going down and i'll be out of them before my sisters wedding! fingers crossed!
Pictures to follow at some point - I like to keep progress photos up to date.
Thanks for reading!
