A few ?'s about elastics...help

I wanted to ask my ortho to explain a few things about them but we got sidetracked by the earthquake and I lost my train of thought. :Questions: So...he told me to wear them at night only...just while I'm sleeping. I...

Re: What a Ca-Ray-Zee appointment!!!

What a Ca-Ray-Zee appointment!!!

OMG! Such an eventful appointment!!! Not only did they change my o-rings which I was expecting...they changed my wire AND I'm now in elastics at night, not expecting that. :cry: But the thing I REALLY didn't expect was laying in the chair with my mouth full of sharp instruments and a freaking earthq...

Re: What Have I DONE????

44 years old here too and I know exactly how you feel. So many times I wanted to go to my ortho's office and tell him "take them off, I'm done". But it gets better, everyday is better than the one before...hang in there.

Re: Looking for some sympathy...

I feel for ya, been there, done that. It will pass I promise you...be patient. It took an entire week before the pain subsided to a tolerable level and even now I have "my days" but it's temporary.

Mbriar, thanks for following and I'm glad you enjoy reading my blog!

mbmanes, thank you for the compliments on my blog. Cleaning does require practice but you'll wittle that time down as you have them on longer.
