I had an adjustment yesterday. I thought I was
going to get rubber bands, but I guess that won't be until next time.
The new wires are 17x25, and they're making my teeth rather sore.
I really don't like my wires being taken out and then sitting around
waiting for the ortho. It makes me feel like I'm driving without
my seatbelt - my teeth aren't strapped in. It's a weird feeling if
you've never had braces before.
Anyway, I went for pink this time. I thought I
was going to get rid of my powerchain but no such luck. Bummer.
I feel like I'm in the holding pattern that so many people complain
about after all the noticeable movement has taken place.
I've been drinking a LOT of tea lately - so much for
not staining my ligatures! I had my teeth cleaned yesterday, too,
so I'm surprised to see that my left lateral looks kind of yellow.
Maybe it's from my tea already this morning.

Only 12 to go!
