Braces - are we nearly there yet??

Somehow another three months has passed since my last brace update. My last appointment was six weeks ago, which means I'm back again this week.

My last appointment was relative easy, my wires put up a bit of a fight, but I've come to expect that. They were replaced with similar wires, again my top wire was virtually a straight line to encourage my molars to move out and my bottom wire had a step in it to try and bring in my bottom molars. I literally have one biting point that isn't quite right, as my bottom molar is sitting outside of my top molar. Hopefully this should fix it. My orthodontist is a perfectionist, if you can't tell! I've still got powerchain on my lower arch to stop the gaps from opening up again on the bottom left hand side.

This was the photograph taken immediately after my last appointment.

Whilst I'm optimistic that I'm almost done as my bite now seems to be correct all round, I'm aware that I've got a visible gap between my upper and lower arches on the left hand side, but not on the right. That may be due to my right centre top tooth resting on the bracket on my tooth below throwing off my bite, but I can't be sure. Hopefully I'll find out this week. Fingers crossed!
