You are right, lionfish, my ortho said she is goint to remove those "match-sticks" but she left them there yet, probably they will be soon gone :)

Yes I feel lucky Linda :D The elastics work wonders, already in 2 weeks I can see changes :D

Today I had my appointment with the good news that wearing the elastics for 10 hours a day is enough for the moment! :lol: So I can solve it while I am at home in the evening and night :D It was a quick, just 15 minutes appointment, with cutting a little from the end of the wire on the left upper si...

Hi Daveyboy, congrats for finally making the decision, I hope you feel better now! Good luck for the lower linguals, I hope you are going to be satisfied with them! Just take your time after the B-day, give your tongue and speech some time to get used to them!

Awaiting your pics! :D

Hi Linda , what a loss it must have been after 18 years! :cry: We have lost also one "furry kid" of ours - who was born in our house - at 2,5 years, he had FIP ( I hope you don't know what it is...) But back to braces, elastics for 24/7, now I started to imagine what it can be like :shock: They must...

Hi lionfish , it is good to hear you have the same buttons than I have, and reassuring me that experiencing jaw pain with elastics is not unusual. Hi Ken , thanks for the ballons :D . It is always nice to hear that you wouldn't tell I have braces! 8) Hi linda21 , I also can't wait for the finished r...

Hard question to decide, Daveyboy! The worst is you cannot try them on before making the decision :) Like KK said, I don't have ceramics only linguals, so I cannot make a comparison but try to answer your questions which relate to linguals. Elastics - I just started to use them 2 weeks ago, you can ...

Sorry it took so long to make the pictures but I post them now finally. After that long and eventful adjustment I had some hard nights. With the elastics on (I just have to wear them at night) when I went to sleep my jaw hurt a lot. I cannot sleep on my back so I was turning all night from one side ...

I just start to have place between my front teeth which were crowded previously so I am quite happy with it :)
I have fake teeth to cover the space of previous extractions on both upper side so if the hole is too big I think your ortho can stick something there if you ask her/him.

You were lucky Tulip with your cheating :D It is great that your progress goes as planned!
Where I could cheat is elastics wearing time, but actually I wear them a bit more than I was told, maybe I hope for quicker movement :)
