3 years in braces

Today marks exactly 3 years since I've had braces. A lot of changes since then. I was supposed to onyl have braces for 2.5 years, but even after three years it looks like I will have them for another year or so.

I am in teeth ache hell since I had the lower wire changed last Tuesday. I have massive molar pain sadly. But it is for the best I guess.

I had some nuts today, plus a cheese sandwich as well as a mango plus a banana.

PS: I have lots of new pictures to add.

guys in braces

I met a few guys in braces but did not get a chance to talk to them about their treatment. One of them had silver brackets another with blue.

a lady in braces

I met a lady with braces. She had them for 1 year and 4 months and have just about a year to go. She says that they were due off a few months earlier, but she had not had a chance to do as she had not been visiting her Orthodontist regularly.

How long have you been in braces?

If you have braces, how long have you been in braces? When did you get them and when do you get them off?

Week 153 and no end in sight at all

Today makes 153 weeks since I got my braces installed.  It's been a long road so far as I approach three years being a metal mouth.

The space between the molars continues to increase slowly and I have the occasional pain.  But I press on with no end in sight.  The Ortho mentioned that she is going to change the wires on the lower arch at the lats visit so I know there is more time to go. 

Oh well.

My molars hurt

My molar is really hurting. It does not help that I just ate some beef on a piece of bone either :-(,
