I had an appointment yesterday and my ortho said that she's going to be putting some silver bands on my back teeth as at the moment I only have them on my second to back teeth. So yesterday I just had some of those little plastic rings shoved in the gaps to open them up ready for my bands to go on at my next appointment next Wednesday. Luckily it didn't hurt as much this time as only one ring snapped, whereas last time they kept snapping over and over again which meant I got all of the metal instruments wacked around my mouth! I'm not really sure what the point of having more bands is, but I just let her get on with it!
She spoke again about me having my top wisdom teeth taken out, and said that she needs to talk to the surgeon about it, but she said that obviously she'll only get me to have it done if it's really necessary.
She also asked me to make an appointment for 6 weeks time, but because she's going to be on holiday it's ended up being 9 weeks time, so will be on 25th August. Although this is annoying because it's slowing the process down again, it could be quite good as I might be starting a job at the beginning of August, so it would mean that I won't be disappearing for an appointment as soon as I start the job...if I get it!
Still not sure what's going on with this tooth with no bracket, I'll have to try to remember to ask her next time I go.
