I'm actually surprised it took this long, eight and a half-ish months, but a right rear lower molar bracket broke off yesterday afternoon. It was not the furthest back one, so no 'pokies' or other archwire issues to deal with, just have to keep attempting to remember to not chew on that side as much. Of course the orthodontist office is closed on Fridays, so it'll just have to wait until Monday. At least it happened before we head out on a backpacking trip Tuesday.
Even with the tiny setback, I'm still more than happy I vetoed invisalign and went semi old-school metal! I'll probably post a follow-up Monday after the fix.
Keep smilin' y'all!
