Re: Headgear not hurting?

You should call your ortho to make sure. But as of right now, I think you're overreacting. Don't worry, I was the same way too lol. Good luck

Re: Speech

You will probably have a speech problem through the entire process. however, it will not sound as bad as you get used to it. the first couple of days makes you sound like a 3 year old, but it should be over in a couple of days or so.

Re: Lingual braces

get a waterpik, it can reach some places that are hard to reach. other than that, make sure you use proxi brushes(Christmas tree brushes) and floss regularly.

Re: Pain after wire change

that is normal. usually after a wire change, you will experience soreness and a bit of pain. I'm sure the pain is gone by now.

Loose wire or no?

I cannot move the wire OUT of the bracket but still moves a little bit within the bracket. In fact, the exact wire on the other side of my teeth move as well. I'm just worried th...
