Is it really time to go to the orthodontist again?!Â I feel like I was just there!
Iâ€™m actually heading to see my doctor tomorrow, and it couldnâ€™t be better timing. Â I know I need my upper wire changed (he said so last time), but I also want him to take a look at my wire on the lower arch.
I got some chain elastics during my last appointment to close up space, and boy, did it work. Â But since I asked for the wire to be cut flush and he used a burr to make it comfortable, when my teeth moved closer together, the wire inevitably became longer than the bracket base and now sticks out.
It doesnâ€™t hurt like it did back in the early days, but I just want him to take a look to make sure itâ€™s okay.
I may ask him to bend the wire the next time I get my wire changed on my lowers. Â My upper wire is bent very close to my tooth, so itâ€™s not cut flush, so Iâ€™m sure I will find the lower one comfortable.
