Okay... this is the gap, the top one is right after expansion was done. The bottom one is from last Sunday.

Weird tingly feeling

After I had the powerchain put on, I noticed a lot of movement immediately. If I didn't take a new picture every Sunday, I would have thought nothing more was happening but, it actually has moved a little more. Not much though.

Now I'm thinking though, something must be happening because my two front teeth are really tingling. It almost feels like when you hit your finger and you can feel it pulsing. Strange, but hopefully it means things are still moving!

I am going to try and post a couple of pictures. One right after expansion and one from last week.

I can't believe how much all of my teeth have moved.

I wasn't even sure exactly what this was but, I knew I wanted one if it helped with this enormous gap. On August 14th, my Ortho put a small powerchain (it looks like 2 elastics (ligs) connected like this) 0-0 on my two front teeth.
I took some ibuprofen right after leaving and then again before bed. I honestly didn't have much pain at all. It was amazing though. It actually moved my teeth within hours. Don't get me wrong, I still have the gap but, it's not nearly as big.

My next appointment is on September 11th and I will start posting with alot more detail then. I have just started this blog and really regret not doing it from the beginning.
