General jaw update - pretty much the same as last time. I can open my mouth about two fingers wide, I've been eating more difficult foods, e.g. I've been eating burgers (veggie ones so prob not as chewy as real ones) and I can actually get the burger, in a bun, in my mouth and bite it. I've also eaten quite chewy cereal bars, and sandwiches with cucumber in. So I'm slowly getting there. I still have my stupid puffy left cheek. I don't think anyone else would notice it, but I can still see it, particularly in certain lights and in photos.
I've got an appointment in a couple of weeks (21st March) where I think they're going to move a bracket to deal with the crossbite that I've apparently developed, so I'll update again after that appointment.
I so cannot WAIT to get these braces off! I can see my poor beautiful straight teeth just longing to break out from their metal chains!!!
Here are my 5 month pics! They're quite close up so not the most flattering, but I think it's more important that I give you pictures where you can really see everything.
This is how wide I can open!
