Well the bottom wire was changed from what my ortho called a "straight" wire to a thicker wire. He also put some type of "springy coil" dead center bottom row of teeth. I asked why and he said to separate teeth so a tooth in back can come forward. He said be prepared for a lot of pressure. Really! You think!?. Pressure isn't the word I would use. My teeth, gums, head hurt so bad I can't even
My bite is completely off. Can't chew anything; and yes I found out the hard way by attempting to chew. Didn't know I could hit a note so high. But swelling, tenderness, pain will be my buddies at least for a couple of days. Ortho said hopefully only 3-5 days but everybody's turnover time is different. So I'll soup it and mash potato it and whatever else I can mash against the roof of my mouth or swallow whole (soft noodles).
I gotta find the humor in here somewhere.
By the way can someone tell me how to post pics?
