Hurting first time in 5 months. Pics Progression!

#1 Post by embraced13 » Tue Apr 29, 2014 5:17 am

Hi all fellow brace-faced!
I've been quietly following the various threads and see other's progression. Always thrills me to see fellow brace-faced getting huge progressions.
Went to the ortho today, he placed some springs and permanent non-removable rubber bands to pull my premolar and molar space gaps.(THEY HURT)
It hurt real bad and I thought why not share some photos of my progressions.
If anyone can enlighten me why my rubber bands are on 24/7 non-removable and tied to the bracket instead of hooked. THANK YOU!

For the past 5 months, they never hurt much, until today when my ortho had all those stuffs in.
My eating habits never changed. pizza, meat and all, except nuts.

Thank you and have a great day!

Ah! Yes, I've heard coils can be painful. I'm sorry and I hope the pain eases up soon.

However, wow!!! Look at the difference between month 2 and 3 especially. That is some amazing progress. Congrats!

Great progress in 5 months.....I am at 5 months and my progress is no where near yours. I have coils too and rubber bands.....I think the rubber bands hurt the most now.

Good luck on the rest of your journey.

Great progress. The growding of your teeth looked a bit like mine so it's interesting to see your progress.
