Six Month Smiles “braces adjustment” appointment with Dr Gill

3rd April 2015

So I returned to Dr Gill at Moonlight Dental Surgery in Slough to have my braces adjusted and keep progressing towards gaining my dream smile.

During the appointment, Dr Gill explained what was going to happen. As usual, he gave me plenty of opportunities to ask any questions.

When I was ready to get started Dr Gill fitted mouth shield to help keep my mouth open, which was just as comfortable as I remembered last time.

First off Dr Gill removed the rubber rings, from each tooth, that were holding the wire in place and then the wire, I didn’t feel anything at all.

He then gave my teeth a quick clean which was good as I have worried about how well I am managing to keep my teeth clean with the braces on. However Dr Gill did reassure me that my usual oral hygiene methods were perfectly fine and keeping them clean which was good to know. He also explained that he only had to clean the really hard to reach areas.

Dr Gill then filed in-between a couple of my teeth, like last time. Although he didn’t have to do as much this time and I didn’t feel any discomfort or pain. After this Dr Gill then put a new wire in. He explained that the wire was a different size as the teeth are ready to go to the next stage given the speed of which they are moving. Once the wire was in Dr Gill then fitted the rubber rings back over my brackets to keep the wire in place. He also fixed two little wires over two of my teeth brackets for extra help with moving them as they needed it most, these are completely unnoticeable.

This process was then repeated for my lower jaw, all exactly the same.

I was really pleased to learn from Dr Gill that my teeth are responding so well to the treatment that I may be finished earlier than initially planned!

This appointment took no more than 40 minutes and throughout that time I felt as comfortable as last time. I did not feel any pain, only sensation was when the wire was being secured in place.

At the end of my appointment Dr Gill took more photos to bench mark the progression of the treatment, this didn’t take more than a few minutes.

Given it has been a month of having the braces on it has actually felt like it’s gone really quickly. Not one person has noticed I am wearing braces. In fact, I’ve started to point it out to people as I am so pleased with how well it’s going that I haven’t stopped recommend Six Month Smiles. I often forget I even have braces on, which I never thought would be the case. Eating is fine too, of course I can’t eat anything too tough or sticky but in general my diet has stayed the same. I am really happy with how well everything has gone, it’s all been so much better than I expected. I can already see a massive change in my teeth and I wish I hadn’t put it off for so long!
