Hey Ken,
Thing is I didnt really have much of a bite problem, the pics i have up i had my mouth slightly open for some of the pics, i have more or less a normal bite (no open bite, underbite, or overbite)
I guess thats why I dont see much change?

had my second adjustment this week, they said they arent upgrading my wire until my teeth are more straightened out and my arch is more rounded
since the wire moves around she out 2 ligs on my molar band to prevent it from moving
they said its coming along nicely
i really dont see too much changes
