Violence cannot be a response to disrespect

To the Blind Violent Muslims Protestors,

You get down on the streets to protest......... Burn this burn that........ Take oath to defend the glory of Muhammad (peace be upon him) until the last drop of blood in your body....... and then vandalize property and buildings as a result of that..... all for a stupid anti-Muslim video which itself was a very IMMATURED production and which itself didn't get much acceptance from the people of its own land.

You Blind Violent Muslim protestors, do you not see that those guys have, indeed, succeeded in leading the nations of a peace-loving religion towards conducting mischief and chaos in the lands? Is this how we glorify Allah and is this how we defend the respect of our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)? By conducting mischief and chaos?

You better have a strong answer to that.

A Muslim who equally condemns the anti-muslim video
and also condemns the rebelious reactions to it made by the muslims

Pulling the jaws by elastic bands

So the crowding on my lower left jaw seems to have corrected quite nicely over the Eid holidays. While the permanent tooth on my upper jaw was now held by wires and plate to facilitate its eruption progress over time.

On this follow up visit, my dentist mentioned that my jaw lines are "misaligned" and they need to be corrected while the procedures continue. Meaning my jaws were mis-aligned as something like this:

Weird, eh? So how can this be corrected? Well, what is better than bringing some teeth back to alignment with a pair elastic bands?
Yup. This is practically how the teeth are being brought back into alignment. I had to wear two elastic bands actually.

Wanna see how big is the elastic band when kept on its own?

on my upper and lower jaws

This much elastic band is spanned over the length of the jaw. You can understand how much tension it puts on the jaws. It used to hurt when i used to take it off or put it on because there is a sudden HIGH PRESSURE snap of the elastic on the hooks which jerk your teeth like super crazy.

Pure mechanical stuff!

A fair progress over the Eid holidays

The crowding seemed to have lined up pretty nicely over the Eid holidays AlHamduLillah. So it definitely deserves a before - after shot on this post. Notice the correction of alignment of the tooth on my lower-left side of the mouth (your lower-right side)

That is definitely a fair improvement over a period of about one and half months, isn't it?
