So I'm 4 months in.. and it still sucks. Although I have gotten used to eating so thats no longer an issue. The gap starting closing really in the last month. Initially it was all about getting my top and bottom arches straight. So its straighten out then tighten up.. makes sense. They put these awful powerchain thingies on to close it up.. Its alott of pressure but I kind of like to feel things working. My front teeth are pretty shaky though.. I can feel them jigglin around in there lol. Here's some pics.. Sorry i look a little nutty but both were taken with my camera phone on a whim.. heehee. Enjoy.
