Just got back from my 5th adjustment. I got elastics today! I saw people talking about these on the forums and I thought I was one of the lucky few who did not have to wear them.. haha.. yeah ok..
She told me I have to wear them 24/7 (with the exception of eating & brushing) and change them 2+ times each day. On the package it says "medium 1/4". Putting them on and taking them off is pretty easy I have to say but having to change them a few times each day will I'm sure be annoying. Also, I can't really open my mouth wide with them in so I'm trying to keep it closed as much as I can.
Anyway, the orthodontist told me that my underbite will get worse in preparation for the surgery - my underbite looks pretty bad as it is now and it makes me wonder how much worse it can get =/
