Teeth are funny things...

i've had my left lateral incisor banded for about 3 months now.. and within the past days i've seen the most movement.. even people state so... its odd to think that teeth move when they want sometimes and not when expected. btw before and after pics.. im only halfways through http://i90.photobucket...

yea a wobbly tooth is fine ( if anything the braces help keep it from falling out, not that it would.. so no worrys about that) and its cool to know someone has the same coil arrangement i did and for me i had to wear them all the way up till last adjustment..

Congrats on getting started... yea spacers are more aggrevating than anything.. ( feels like ya got huge chunks of streak forever caught in your teeth ) they wern't bad at all for me.. but things may differ for you ... as for the pain give it a week and it should die down a bit..
