So I am 11 weeks in and all seems to be going ok so far
Before and at 11 weeks:
One thing I am not so happy with, but kinda am at the same time? because it's because of movement... I have a gap! well, a black triangle in my opinion. It's between my left central incisor and the lateral incisor.
I will be having my last (impacted) wisdom tooth removed on the 21st of March, yay!

So I've been wearing my braces for 28 days now. Everything is going ok, flossing is getting easier by the week and I no longer feel so upset/stressed at the thought of it. I use regular floss and it's going well now. I am able to thread the floss under the archwire pretty easily - it does get a little more 'difficult' when it comes to the back teeth, but I'm getting there.
My teeth pretty much stopped being sore by about week 2 or 3... but I noticed in the past couple of days my 4

So I thought I would post an update, 5 days in. The aching/soreness of my teeth seems to have eased up in the past couple of days, my teeth are no longer hurting/aching when I wake up in the morning. I have now started to eat a bit more solid food (only a bit though), but although my teeth are no longer hurting 'constantly' (yay, I don't need pain killers anymore!), they do still hurt a little while chewing, but nothing like compared to before. I am still unable to chew properly though, and that's

Well my upper braces were fitted on Thursday, all went fine and I had no problems. I have all metal with Purple ligatures, but my central incisors, left lateral incisor and 1st molars have wire ties rather than ligatures.
I started to experience some discomfort about 9 hours after they were fitted and it's been pretty much constant ever since, apart from when I have taken some pain medication.
My back teeth don't meet, but I don't have any build ups/bite turbos, so

So the spacers were fitted today. I have 9 in total, 4 on the lower (2 on each side) and 5 on the upper (3 on the left and 2 on the right). I didn't notice the 3 on the upper left until I got home. I looked in the mirror and thought "huh? 3 on the left and 2 on the right? argh! 1 is missing!" lol. I phoned to make sure and they got back to me later when the Ortho wasn’t so busy and said it was fine and "he wants to create more space on that side" so that's why the extra 1, whatever
