I didn't notice any movement until about 3 or 4 weeks into treatment so don't despair that you haven't noticed any yet. One day you'll look in the mirror and think "wow- when did that happen?!"

I made it through my first adjustment! :D About 50 mins in the chair was hard to take but it can only get easier from her on in, plus I reckon my dentist phobia should be cured by the time I get these braces off! Had my ligs changed on the bottom (kept same archwire) but have got wire ties on my low...

I too am obsessed with checking out other people's teeth! I guess that happens when you are unhappy with your own. I seem to also be asking lots of people with good teeth whether they had braces when they were younger.

Good luck for your up-coming brace day :D

I remember signing my contract and it also said that only removable retainers were included in the price. I wonder if this is quite common to most orthodontists? I had to query mine as I had already been told that I would be having bonded retainers on my uppers.

Hope you get everything resolved

Well, 2 days to go until my next trip to the orthodontist and my dentist-phobia is beginning to set in! The double-whammy of my first adjustment and an extraction are making me very anxious and I'm having another "what am I doing?!" moment.

Why am I such a wimp?! :oops:

My last molars have a tube that the arch-wire sits inside and all the other brackets have slots for the wire and the lig just holds it tight (not sure what type of linguals I have). Someone might be able to put the wire back in the brackets?

Good luck! :)

You're right LongintheT, I don't know of many adults in the UK with braces. Lots of people have asked me why I'm bothering as my teeth "aren't that bad" (what a compliment!) but I know I've made the right decision for me. (Even if I STILL can't talk completely normally! :lol: ) I noticed that we wer...

Congratulations on getting braced. :D Your ligs look lovely, I think I'm feeling a tiny bit jealous that as I have linguals I don't get to pick colours!

Hope your headache has gone

Hi Swtmisery Congrats on getting braced, hope you're still feeling fine and no pain. I'm sure you'll get used to your new look in no time. I too have had to wait for an extraction. My ortho said she wanted to get my teeth moving before she removed my tooth. Am getting it removed at my 1st adjustment...

Looking really good- your archwire is really rounding out. :D I'm sure it won't be long until your front two teeth are straight again!
