Well I haven't updated this in a while so it looks like big changes:
1yr 5 mon progress.jpg
I'm quite happy except that my upper midline is way off.... but my ortho doesn't seem to notice/care and I don't see how it can be easily fixed; on my upper arch I only have a wisdom tooth on one side so I believe the uneven amount of teeth has caused it. Not sure. Otherwise I still have a massive overbite and I'm wearing Class II elastics plus another elastic at night to help close it (which goes between my two front teeth, over the archwire, and is attached at both incisors at the bottom):

I sometimes feel like you are my teeth twin.

How did your ortho find the space to get all your bottom front teeth in line? Amazing progress!
Sectional brace with Damon clear brackets fitted to front 6 upper teeth 3 January 2012
Brackets added to premolars 2 April 2012
Estimated treatment time originally 6-9 months
. Brace removed on 22 July 2013 after 18 months and 19 days
Now enjoying bonded upper retainer plus part time essix/hawley( I have both)

Good question, because I didn't mention I chose to have one tooth pulled ! I'll post photos.

The ortho did say I could keep the tooth but it would take "much longer" to get everything to fit.... not sure if that would have worked but we both thought the arch was wide enough without it. And my top arch needs to be a bit larger so no point making the bottom arch too large.
