So feel like I am having a rough time with my teeth at the moment. For the first time in ages they're not sore, there's no rubbing, the bleeding is pretty much non-existent now, and all the gaps are closed.. They just look bloody awful.

I was fully aware that they were going to get worse leading up to the op, but my bottom teeth are sticking out so much now I'm actually starting to not want to leave the house, which is bad.. I know I shouldn't worry about it, but it's like having your worst features put on show and highlighted. I guess that on the upside by the time op comes around I'll be desperate to have it done to stop them looking so bad...!! I'll have to start taking some photos and putting them up for you to see. I just have to keep reminding myself about the endpoint and I know it'll be worth it in the end.. It'd just be nice if people could understand me when I talk to them and not have to spit over them when I do!!! :D

I can't believe they have moved so much and yet it's gonna take ages before I'm ready for op. Really want to ask my ortho how long she reckons, but don't wanna sound like a whiny kid in the style of 'are we there yet??' every time I go to see her.. But if it potentially could be over summer I need to know otherwise I'm going to start thinking about what I'm going to do over the holidays..!!

Ortho put on a steel wire and a stronger copper one last visit and so wanted to leave them 8 weeks to 'really work' so will have to wait til Feb before I can make enquiries..

hey. braces suck. I'm pretty much in the same position as you except that I've had braces twice before already so my treatment this time around will be shorter. I'm getting my braces on in March for surgery in June. I've been worrying about my profile with braces too. Just keep thinking about the finished product and all the before and after stories that out there. Our teeth are going to look AMAZING once this is all done and finished.
