Patient Spotlight: My 6 Month Smile Journey | First Adjustment Appointment

Kelly's Smile Journey  2

I had my first appointment to have my braces adjusted. I cannot believe how much my teeth have moved in three short weeks! They replaced the wire for my top teeth, since they were moving pretty easily.  Each wire is a little thicker and pulls a little harder than the one before. The doctor decided to leave the bottom bracket on this time, and just tighten it a little, since my bottom teeth are so crooked and crowded they are moving a little slower. When they attached and tightened the wire to the bracket, it did hurt a little, because the teeth are already sensitive from the process of moving to their new positions. I just took a few ibuprofen to take care of the pain.

I am getting pretty good with the flossing now, so it is not taking quite as long. The inside of my lips no longer hurt me at all, I guess they are calloused enough to take the friction now. My future adjustment appointments will only be two weeks apart now. I am very impressed with the changes I am seeing so far and look forward to my next appointment in two weeks!
