Re: 28, SARPE / SARME, soon to be braced!

Yes 3 months seems unusually long to me for sure. I did get movement the whole time over the last 3 months though...

I won't say it was comfortable, but the discomfort of pushing, pulling and pressure doesn't last long. I di...

Re: Braced yesterday, anyone else's first archwire look as crazy as this?

Thanks so much verso. That incisor is the one that has annoyed me ever since I can remember, it has always been hidden and finally is coming out so quick. The bottom has no where near the progress (but it's not the bottom teeth that look so awful lol). I had sarpe surgery (why I look like a crazy og...

Re: 28, SARPE / SARME, soon to be braced!

Finally getting some pictures up! It has been an emotional ride the last week and a half. Getting the braces on was pretty cruisy. In all I was in for about 1 hour but some of that was impressions and updated pictures. That first night my whole head felt off and everything was sensitive. But all in ...

Braced yesterday, anyone else's first archwire look as crazy as this?

Title explains it all.
Underwent sarpe surgery in march. Braces on yesterday.
Feeling pretty emotional because it looks so terrible but I do know that this is the only way it will ever improve :(
So anyone else have a crazy first wire?

Re: 28, SARPE / SARME, soon to be braced!
