Month One

"Can't believe the first band change is due already! The first month has been absolutely fine. No real problems what so ever. For the first few day I would say my teeth felt slightly tender but no pain. I got a couple of little sore spots on my cheeks but the wax I got in my kit was brilliant. After a few day that all went away and it's been great ever since. I have bite stops on my back teeth but I have mastered eating with them and can eat most things now (cut everything into small pieces). I avoid anything too chewy and vibrant coloured foods. The thing I have been missing most is my glass of red wine but I think if I drink it through a straw I can avoid staining my bands lol. I can see movement already which is really encouraging and I am so excited to watch the progress."

3rd Band Change

Just finished getting my 3rd band change and all went well. Slightly different this time as I now have power chain put on my top right eye tooth, as we need it to move more than the rest. I can feel the difference already there is definitely more pressure. I also had a bracket fall off, not quite sure what I did, probably ate something just a bit too hard. Gillian replaced it and put a new one on for me. Apart from that I haven't had any other problems and I am very pleased with the progress. I have made the weekend before my band change curry weekend as I know my bands will stain and I only have a day with them like that. So I am not missing anything lol.
