I remember in the beginning it taking forever for them to get my eye teeth moved...they kept having to switch tactics because they weren't moving fast. So rubber bands are only for bite, is it? I wasn't sure what all they ...

Ack. 21 months...

I just came back to the forum after forever being gone. And I looked at my ticker. 21 months. My original estimate was 2 years. My teeth are pretty different than when I started. They're wonderful. But there are gaps that need closing even yet. Is it normal to go over your estimate? I'm feeling kind...

I got steel ties too. Started off with elastics, but once I got the steel boy did my teeth move! It's a bit weird feeling...and I kinda miss the colors, but hey...whatever gets the crowd going. I've got a few stubborn teeth that hardly want to move even WITH the steel ties. :P And yes...the otter fe...

I also had that problem...ugh, what a pain. Me I ended up using like 2 wax dots from a packet...molding them together kinda and then sticking one sort of onto the nearest bracket while smoothing as much as I could backwards to cover the bare wire. Be careful with too much wax use though...I found it...

Pendulum Appliance? I'm not familiar...can't advise except to say where possible, wax is a good good friend. And I feel your pain on the eating thing. Had some extractions and was on the soft food diet. It does get old super fast. :wink: But it'll get better.

Welcome aboard!
