I went to my 11th adjustment today and my ortho was happy about my gaps being closed! Now he is going to work on closing my open bite on the right side. He put a thicker wire on top (yay....) and made some kinks in my upper and lower wire to try and bring my teeth together. My upper teeth should come down a little and my lower teeth need to come up a little. I hope these wires work their magic fast!
Open bite on the right.
I was HOPING I was done with power chains since I had 3 power chains in my mouth the last 6 weeks. It looks like I only need 1 on my upper teeth this time. Thank goodness! The assistant asked me what color I wanted and I asked if they had a really LIGHT pink, but I think she misunderstood me because she came back with a really BRIGHT pink! No way I was putting a bright pink power chain in my mouth! So I just asked for clear. I'll have to really stay away from staining foods this time.
Nice clear power chain!
Here are some pictures of my upper and lower teeth. I haven't taken pictures at these angles in a while!
The blue molar build up has ground down so much it doesn't even affect my bite anymore!
Upper teeth. Nice and straight!
I hope my teeth move quickly! I'll keep you guys posted =) Thanks for reading!
