I had my 13th adjustment this morning. My ortho says that my teeth are looking good and I'm so close to being done. He just wants to work on closing up my bite on my right side. I will still be in my triangle elastic configuration on my left side, but my right side will be a little different. It's kind of like a Class II configuration and triangle configuration combined into one (shown below):
(Right side) Class II/Triangle configuration
(Left side) Triangle configuration
I can already start seeing a difference in my bite on my right side! And I can definitely feel the pressure. I am sure in the next couple weeks my teeth are really going to come together. I also heard my ortho talk about doing some IPR on my lower teeth at my next adjustment.
So here is the GREAT news!! My orthodontist said that next my next adjustment will be my FINAL adjustment and he's hoping to schedule my debanding date after that!! WOOHOO!!!!! Are you serious?? Don't play with my emotions! So it looks like October will be the month I will have naked teeth. I just have to make sure that I'm diligent with my elastics wear the next 6 weeks. OMG I'm so stoked right now. I'm trying not to keep my hopes up but how can you not when they tell you things like that?!
6 weeks until my next adjustment! I can't wait!
