After the separators, comes the molar bands

So I have put on the separators in the previous week. After giving it about little less than a week's time to create enough space around my molars, it was time to take the separators off (also known as spacers) and put the molar bands in place.

I had put on 6 such molar bands.
  • on 1 lower left molar
  • on 1 lower right molar
  • on 2 upper left molars
  • on 2 upper right molars
Settling the molar bands seamlessly around the molars is quite tough. My mouth always felt a little heavier and something stuck around the inner teeth. It was not very comfortable the first few days. And around these times I really appreciated the beauty, the slickness and the fine-features of God gifted teeth which we the humans have.

However, i took some shots after putting the molar bands in place.
