I kept my triangle elastics but got to just use them at night. Then in September, he said the magic words...are you ready to get them OFF! WHOOT! So Oct. 6 almo...

Well, I am getting laxed about posting. Went in on June 4th and he decided to put in my second sure smile wire. I told him that I felt like my front teeth had too much space between them, so a new wire tie went on. The next day my new wire was killing my back molars, like it was poking. I had to rid...

hmmm. what to do...I'm still concerned about my 2nd molars as they are not lining up in my arch how I think they should be. I don't think these elastics are working that well either and when I yawn, they keep breaking. My bite feels really wonky also........ I have two more weeks until my next 'mini...

Hi Snowglobe, Thanks for reading. I wanted to see the 'future' so to speak of my suresmile because I thought it was very cool. I'm a scientist by trade and so these types of things fasinate me to begin with. The wierd thing about my last adjustment was that she decided not to use the second wire in ...

Can't believe it has been 6 months! I'm having a beef though with my teeth: I'm not liking how my bottom teeth are lining up. they did the IPR and I think they took too much off. there is a gap between my lower two front teeth. the power chain is not closing it, and it is so annoying that i'm catchi...

I guess happy that I am progressing! Hope you get everything taken care of! good job on figuring out your elastic problem...

Had my 3rd adjustment today. Wire change on top and bottom to the sure smile wires. I think the size is back to 0.14, but I'm not sure. There are a million little bends in them and I'm sure i'm going to be hurting a lot more than I already am. Gaps were closed, so wire tie all across the top. IPR on...
