Not a happy camper today.
has my archwire reattached and now i am enjoying the delayed effects of my most recent adjustment.
if you count painful movement and bloody cheek from over night movement and the bracket on my bottom front tooth decided to attack me as enjoyable.

thank you shelley,
I was hopeful to have them off by christmas but that is not going to happen now.

Hi Louis,
How is it going? Still missing the elastics?
Did your elastics causes gaps to appears between your teeth?

I think the thing you'll find really surprising, is that it might look like they aren't moving but then suddenly it will free up and then it'll feel so worth it. I think the first few months and last few months are the hardest. You'll get there. :)
Thank you Chippy
(can you tell that i am just getting round to replying to all the posts here.
I think you are right the last month, i have not really seen any changes. I think i am getting a bit ocd looking for changes. Maybe its because I am so impatient and have waited so long for this.

I cried over my dinner because the wax kept falling off and it was so painful to chew! It gets better though I promise. You've made a lot of progress already - all the pain is proof of that :wink:
Thank you onwardsandupwards.
I think you have the best user name here, kind of wanted it for my self :P /
Since you posted this I have been wax free, but I am due to have the rest of my bottom brace put on this week, and my mind has already jumped to ouch that is going to hurt.

Mamma Mia here we go again my my ouch ouch.
My adjustment yesterday included a full teeth clean and the rest of my brace going on the bottom and now full time in elastics. In 24 hours my teeth have so much, it's shocking how close I am to the smile I have always wanted.

Why get fast braces? Just spend two years in normal braces, have a result that's stable.
