Some subtle changes

I am at the point now where I am more actively looking for subtle changes. I think things are coming along, just slowly. Unfortunately my ortho doesn't usually say much at my appointments so nothing exciting has happened lately. I did get a heavier upper wire this last time. I've been feeling the soreness ever since! Things better be happening in there! =P

Here are a couple of pictures of my upper right and upper left jaw. It is so hard to get the same angle twice! ugh. Hopefully you can see the changes that I can see, albeit subtle.

Leave comments, let me know what you think! =D

WOW - it has been 6 MONTHS already?!

I can't believe that it has been 6 months already since my braces were put on! Time has really begun to fly by. I guess it helps to try not to focus too much on what is going on inside my mouth and just live day by day. It was a little hard to do at first but I am so used to my braces, orthodontist appointments, tenderness/soreness that it all just feels normal.

Below is a picture of my upper arch at the current mark of 6 months.

Below is my upper arch when I first got my expander (2/4/09)

Oh wow, I see loads of difference!!!!!!!! =] =]
