10 weeks have passed. wow.
And overall -- since day 1 to now -- the changes are massive. My teeth are always moving. But the gaps that I had in my front teeth -- created by having braces -- have started to close. However, now I have more space between two teeth on the side, but it's not as noticeable as when the space was right in the front. Now my smile looks super straight! But... ... when I bit down, I feel like my top doesn't really align with the bottom. Which has been causing me some difficulties while eating. My jaw cracks sometimes when I'm chewing. This will be fixed when I get my bottom braces. But since I have trouble completely closing my mouth, I have been sleeping with my mouth open -- very glamorous, I know! The problem with this is that I am always waking up super thisrty and with insanely chapped lips. I wake up with huge cuts on my lips, sometimes bleeding or with dryblood because of how dry my lips get. So now I need to have lip balm with me all time and I look like a maniac applying it every 5 min during the day.
Does this happen to you, or I'm just weird?
