Elastic Bands on my Teeth!

During the last few months my teeth have continued to move. Gaps have appeared between my bottom left and right teeth.

For the first time since I  had them fitted I needed to use the gel strips to relieve a sore patch caused by rubbing. The only problem, I was away on holiday and hadn't bothered to take the strips with me, typical!

Today I went to the orthodontist. She created a couple of little hooks from which I now have to hook a tiny elastic band between my top and bottom teeth. These are called elastics, which are being used to correct a slant that has developed now that my teeth have become more upright. I had a bit of a struggle to begin with, but with the aid of a pair of tweezers I think I will get the hang of it.
