Adjustment #16 yesterday. Replaced upper wire - same gauge but with a closing loop. Finally we'll take care of the extraction gap. About time - extraction was back in spring 2016. :) My orthodontist worked carefully on the position and shape of the loop. He also told me that TMA wires work better on ceramic brackets in his experience. (I have some ceramic brackets for upper.)

Tightening on lower. Same wire.

Took an Advil at dinner time yestereday and did not eat much -- adjustment was mid morning and I was pretty sore by evening. Flossing this morning was painful. But towards dinner time today - about 30 hours after the visit - things seemed to have returned to normal. The new normal anyway.
