He told me that I would really feel it on the left side. :shock: He was definitely right!! Hard to believ...

Had my 5th adjustment yesterday!! I got some GREAT news too! My ortho said that this is the final wire I will have on top. the last jump I had (which hurt a lot) was the biggest jump, but for the most part it sounds like, that my top teeth are where they need to be. He is now working on my crossbite...
