Yes, that seems long, but what do I know? :BigGrin: I also have self-ligating brackets and had my first wire change just three weeks out. But part of that was because they waited until the 3 week mark to put the final four brackets on my molars, which are crowned. Since they were adding those brackets, I guess they went ahead and changed the wire as well (one size up).

My next appointment is not for six weeks. I have not noticed any tooth movement yet so hope I see just a bit before my next appointment. I'm impatient!

I'm also curious on how the new wire adjustments will feel like!

Nothing earth-shattering. :lol: You will feel tension/tightness and then some pain.
