March 23, 2011 - 2nd Appt

I was scheduled to have my first checkup since getting braces applied this past Wednesday. However, on Monday, a portion of the archwire connecting some teeth had snapped and required an immediate fix. So, I traveled 2 hrs to see my orthodontist. The appointment was fairly quick - my orthodontist confirmed things were going well and her assistant applied a new wire (though I do not know if the wire is thicker or just the same as the one I had started with in early February). I had no pain from the wire change. One noticeable difference is the change in the coils/springs on the top of my mouth; they are now tighter than and not as "loop-ish" looking. I will keep the post short, but I've posted some pictures from my teeth taken on March 24, 2011. Oh, and one other thing, I requested to be referred to a second oral maxillofacial surgeon in order to get a 2nd opinion on the invasive procedure (orthognathic surgery) that I will need to have in order to properly fix my bite. See previous blog entries for my discussion on orthognathic surgery. My next appointment is scheduled for May 2, 2011.
