This one's for John: an update!

Greetings Followers,

I am truly sorry for not being an avid blogger in terms of regular updates and such. I have been studying French in Quebec, Canada, for the past 6 weeks.

So what's new? This past Monday I seen my orthodontist. She is extremely pleased with the eruption and guidance of the impacted canine. It has erupted a lot since an elastic power chain had been applied back in June! On monday, an additional power chain had been added. The new power chain/ elastic connects to the left lateral incisor.  Also on Monday, my left lateral incisor received a bracket (finally); It was also laced to other teeth in the top arch. I don't feel much pressure on the incisor, maybe because it is not connected to the arc wire. However, I feel some pain from the impacted canine as it is being pulled with more force now.

The bottom brackets and arch wire was applied in June. There is a coil spring trying to make room for a tooth to be pulled into the arch. So many coils! I already see a difference in my bottom teeth in just six weeks.

Some good news: my orthodontist said I may not even require surgery, but it is too early to tell.

I avoided one surgery already: impacted canine. Let's see if I can escape a second one!

John, here are some pics! I will try my best to update on time!

One last note: I am inspired at the energy of some fellow bloggers and want to take the time to wish Laura congratulations on her recent surgery and recovery!

  1. Orthodontic appliances are made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. They may be removable or they may be brackets bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to the proper position.

  2. Any recent updates on the braces? I bet you’ve gotten used to them by now, if they aren’t off yet. Remember that gum soreness can be relieved by rinsing your mouth with a warm saltwater mouthwash.

  4. Wow it looks like you have received some really great service. It's not very common to have impacted canines. Have they given you a estimated amount of time you will have braces? http://www.myuniversaldentalcare.com
