Hey buddy let's see some updated pics! Hope all is well! I see my ortho tomorrow to discuss palatal expansion and get a better idea of how much longer that would take! December will be 2 years in back braces for me and only 17 months in full braces

My teeth seemed to definetly overlap more than what they did when I had my braces first removed. I live in constant fear as not sure I could cope with more treatment. Would appreciate any comments. Thanks!
Just read your entire post, what an amazing journey and your final results look great! It still looks good to me :) I just started my journey a few months, the end seems so far away but I hope I end up with good results.

I had to edit the picture on my iPhone as it the file was too big. Here is a recent picture. I am only sitting at 1.5mn-2mm overlap now. I finished with 4-5mm so am a bit worried.

Here are sides views. As you can see the contact on my right site is not as good and never really was. My ortho said this is not something to be concerned about but it sure as hell brother me.

I do notice a slight space that has opened between your k9 and first premolar. Or that could possibly just be a problem with the photo? I really despise the resolution limits here because in a case like this it makes it pretty hard to judge the results.

Your bite is closed now, that is good. Do you have any scalloping of the tongue? Set an alarm for a random time of the day, and keep a mirror in your pocket. When it goes off, immediately use your phone selfy, or mirror, to see if you can see a very strong outline of your front teeth left on your tongue.

Your smile looks great still though TBH
