Is it ok when the bite becomes worse before it gets better. I got the braces only on top, for now, and my teeth don`t really "fit" together anymore. My bottom teeth are ok, but I have to get my molars "brought down" and alighned with others on top.
Yes, it is common for things to "get worse before they get better". The time to worry is if the orthodontist wants to remove your braces and you are not happy with the result.
