Adjustment #16

Yesterday was adjustment #16. As I expected I'm still not really ready to have the braces removed. My upper eye teeth seem to be what ails me these days since they're stopping me from biting down all the way before clashing with the lower teeth. He adjusted the wire to move them down and out.

As for other teeth, my top right molar right at the back (#27) needed more torque to move it lingually. And one of my pre-molars on the top right needed a bump, so he adjusted that too.

After all of this now my bite is worse than it was two days ago, but the same thing happened last time and it got better in about two weeks, so here's hoping.

The journey continues for another 8 weeks.
