It's just your overbite, you'll get used to it. The teeth will be shifting and it'll either stay the same (mine did) or it'll go away. I can't say if it's normal or not, but I went through the exact same thing. I still have an overbite to this day... 7 years after the braces came off.

Tomorrow, you should call the orthodontist and ask if you should get "buttons". They're little things that they put on two of your bottom molars to prevent that from happening. I got them and they really helped. Also, if you don't do anything about it, it could do some dmage to your teeth by moving the brackets around, and you will have to wear your braces longer.

Just be careful when you bite down and put some brace wax on the bottom bracket. Your teeth will shift soon.

Yeah, it totally rearranges your bite and everything. I was SO uncomfortable, but you get used to it. Tell your orthadontist if it doesn't correct itself... also, you might have an overbite, so you will probably get elastics that will completly fix the problem! I hope i helped and good luck! Ask you guardian if you can take some pain killers... it helps alot!

same thing happened to me. eventually it does rearrange itself, but ask your ortho. they'll put little pieces of what seems like glue on your molars so you can chew. it mmakes it hard to chew gum though :(
