Lookin' good, lookin' good!! :banana: I had my fourth adjustment today (I haven't even posted about my third adjustment)! I'm in A LOT of pain and discomfort. I had no pain after the last adjustment and now I'm making up for it! I think I hear a margarita calling my name for supper! :lol: :-88

Hi crystalct1 ~ Thanks for visiting! Sounds like we're in the same boat! :) I've asked my ortho and I never really got a clear answer why he did my lowers first. To me it made more sense to do my uppers first. As soon as we have enough room (which should be pretty soon), he'll put two false teeth o...

OK - as usual, I'm behind in updating! So I had my 3rd adjustment last Monday. I took pics right away but never got time to post as we went on vacation Wed and got back last night (Sun). I'm hoping to get them up in the next day or two (fingers are crossed). :lol: I was pleasantly surprised to find...

Hi Kara ~

Those PCs sure sound awful! I'm sure my time is coming......

Not looking forward to elastics neither......

But I am looking forward to the "perfect" smile!

So after you were "unjailed" did the pain from that one tooth subside?

Looks like you're making excellent progress, though.

Hi Pearls ~ GREAT movement - especially on the lower arch! Wahoo! :banana: Yeah, I would be very frustrated with myself, too, if I missed an appt but hopefully that won't happen as my ortho emails / calls me plus they have it set up on their web site for the option to confirm appts. If you don't co...

Hi Jenny ~ Sounds like a weekend of fun! Hope the weather holds out! For me, it seems that every couple days, different teeth are sensitive and painful! It's a pain in the butt but at least it means SOMETHING is happening - right?! :? I, too, have been trying to figure out how to use the cool smili...

Too funny Blondie! :lol: Actually the ceramics are rougher and bigger and my lip gets caught on them but they are not causing any sores (anymore). I haven't used any wax at all on the ceramics. It's my upper metal molar brackets that are causing me sores and those bare wires over my extraction site...

Hi Martin ~ Just checking in as I've been MIA for quite awhile...... Great movement you're having! :D Congrats on getting longer wires!! I'm finally fully braced - ceramic uppers and metal lowers.

Hi Bekah ~ Just thought I'd drop by and say hi! It's been awhile...... Well at least your ortho was understanding and considerate while working on you and putting you through all that pain.

Hi B ~ It's been awhile since I've checked in (as usual)...... Sorry to hear about all the breakage! YIKES!!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you're done with wires breaking. Just curious - why wire ties instead of ligs? Because they're stronger??? I'm finally fully braced - ceramic uppers and ...
