Week 2 braces progress

#1 Post by Mimo1985 » Tue May 24, 2016 9:07 pm

Hi all -
Just posting some photos of week 2. There is not any noticeable changes on my teeth being "straighter" (I think), but on my open bite things looks slightly less open :) Pretty happy I see something different so quickly. Obviously I have a long way to go. I can't wait until the top arch is straight.

Thanks for posting! Can you chew normally and any more pain?

I think around day 5/6 I felt like I could eat a bit more normally. The front of my teeth are still sensitive - but the back molars feel fine. I was able to eat some harder foods by day 8, and definitely not in any pain :)

Totally :D

Im not going to lie - having these for two weeks has been a drain but if I keep seeing progress - it just motivates me that I made the right decision.

I can definitely see movement already! Your bite is considerably less open! It's amazing how quickly these "torture devices" can move things along! Congrats!
