My lips do actually touch. It will better without braces on.
This is probably the best place to see how my midline's over to the side. It would be really nice if the orthodontist could tweak that but I'll try to be philosophical about it if not.
Yellow/brown teeth eh. The mouthwash I was given did it, apparently. I will have to see my dentist after the braces are off to see what can be done.
I might not look 'perfect' but I can definitely live with what I have now!
Last night I slept on my back all night and NO PAIN in the joint. This is great. What's just as good is that my aligned bite, which always appears at night, lasted most of the morning instead of being gone by breakfast. Great. And I've been doing my mouth opening exercises. I'm meant to do them 6 times a day! Too hard! He said 4 would be OK.
