I wish!! Unfortunately each aligner has such a small adjustment (thanks to my ortho). Might take a while to see improvement. Sorry to hear that the fries are off the menu. :(

Re: Braces Journey from Chaotic Choppers - Australia

Wow CC. Sounds really painful. You started your treatment a day after me so I am looking forward to watching your progress. How often does the orthodontist adjust the braces?

Cheers,

Paul.
