6 Months in Braces

I had an appointment with my OD last week. It was once again one of those appointments where he says, 'hmm, let's keep these wires, I need a little bit more movement here before we change to steel." But, that's the lesson we all learn right? Patience? Also, passing the 6 month mark in braces made me realize that this whole process will be over before I know it, time has really flown. My next appt is in three weeks. He is trying to straighten out my lower central crowded mess, then we can go to steel.

Here are some comparisons between month 4 and now. The biggest difference I can see is my bottom arch is definitely expanding.  My missing tooth space is almost double the size it was.


  1. Your teeth are looking great! Surgery will be here before you know it!

  2. Looking good Amanda, your bottom arch has expanded so much! You can see how your teeth have straightened loads too :)

  3. Your teeth are looking good! They're much straighter these days. I wish you luck on your coming surgery, Amanda.
