Thicker Wire

Today I went back to my ortho to have my wires put back on. I have the same wire on the bottom and a new thicker wire
on the top. I can definitely feel the pressure on the top. It makes me wonder if am going to be eating soup for the next
few days...

I will also be getting thicker wire on my bottom brace. Was looking forward to it but now that u have given me the heads up I'm not so keen. Did your ortho advise you why you need the thicker ones on the top? My bottom teeth are pretty straight compared to my top teeth so I'm not sure why the bottom needs thick wires.

Hi Jen, yeah, everytime a thicker wire is put on your teeth have more pressure on them and they get really sore. I think they use the thicker wire to move the teeth more. I'm not too sure. Good luck!

Hi Aimee,
its so convenient to read your posts. i've had my braces for almost 4 weeks now and have my first check up after next week. But i like following your progress cos it gives me a good idea of what to expect. you know, i just knew that pain free teeth would not last forever and it was just because the worst was yet to come. thanks for keeping us posted it helps alot.
