Hi xxnecraxx! Your teeth are looking good. Our crossbites are very similar and mine seem to be fixing very slowly. Its frustrating because my teeth aligned very fast but it seems like fixing the crossbite may take long. Im in elastics right now too and I go in June 26th to see if they worked! I hope so.

Good Luck!

Hi XXNECRAXX, Your teeth look awesome! I can't wait to see some progress like that with my own. Hope your ortho gets everything straightened out very soon!

So my archwire is actually staying put this go around! thank the heavens!!! My crossbite has finally moved!!!! i went ahead and put 3 elastics on for about 3 days in a row and POOF! it moved!!! lol yeah a little extream but i was getting impatient! lol... anyway now im not sure if I should wear one or two or no elastics!!! my bite feels good but i would hate to stop wearing them and have my ortho tell me that i didnt wear them long enough... Im going to give them a call on monday and ask him his oppinion... at my last adjustment my ortho said that the only thing holding me back is my cross bite and after that they just fix mid-line and bite (spaces between and around the teeth) so now that im pretty sure that my crossbite is a thing of the past i'm so excited and nervous about my next adjustment in a few days!!! I'm hoping that he will tell me that i'll be done in just a few short months and thats it!

soooooooo anyway! tomorrow is my 11 months!!! almost a year i can't believe it!!! almost a whole year in braces... feels like I've had them all my life ya know... I'm just so used to them now! when i get them off i'll have phantom braces for a few weeks! lol well ne whos i will have some new pics for my 11 months either tonight or tomorrow!! see you all then!!!

ok so i went for my adjustment today and my crossbite is fixed!!! i just have to wear one rubberband at night for another month just to set it in place!... i had xrays taken today and he said everything looks straight and good... n all we need to fix is bite!...I got a new lower archwire with a bend in it to rise my one tooth on the bottom thats a little lower then the rest and and new power chain! i got bright pink! also my ortho said that my lower jaw slides a little and so i have been fitted with to rubberbands on both sides of my mouth reaching from my molars to my canines to pull my top teeth back a bit. he said as soon as i cant slide my lower teeth then thats fixed! i need to wear these 24/7... he also noted my midline being off and that my last molar on my right was still in a light cross bite but he will address thos in the next adjustment which is 8/11/2009 my one year braceaversary will be on 7/14/2009 so im happy that im almost a year in!!!

other then that the paid from the elastics is different then last time... this configuration is pulling a different direction that hurts more then the norm but no pain no gain.. here is a pic of all the rubber in my mouth do you like my new power chain!? lol

Thanks!...

The pain and pressure has subsided with the elastics but i must say eating with them is a pian!! everytime i open wide to bite into any thing... **SNAP!!** and it scares the poo out of me! lol So I take them out to eat its rediculious to have to swap them out everytime i open my mouth to chew.

Its almost time to celebrate my one year in braces!.. in one week from tomorrow! I cant believe how far i come and how fast time has gone!

see ya soon!

Your teeth are looking great! How are the elastics going? I think i'm luckily avoiding elastics, but never say ever eh!

Wow a year, do you feel like its gone fast?

Hi XXNECRAXX!

It sounds like you have gone through a lot in the last year! Your graft looks like it was really painful! But to look at your pictures now you can't even tell!

Your teeth look amazing! Hopefully you will be able to get them off sooner!
