That's a bad idea to let your husband manoeuvre the lig back on. Give your ortho a call for sure on Monday! It can wait. It's happened to me a few times, but I didn't call I just waited until the next adjustment.

Congrats on the progress! I don't know how much time.... :? Well, I hear that if you wear them a little bit longer, that means less retainer wear??? :?:

Forget about brackets.... Find a good ortho. Also the wires move the teeth not the brackets

It's called a smart retainer. It's relatively new.

I was reading an article about cost of braces, and in general in Canada it is higher, than the neighbours to the south. Edit: I found the article! :D Here you go Maverick (and others who are interested) :) USA NorthWest Idaho N. Idaho $5,184 (Damon brackets) Oregon Portland suburbs $5,500 Washington...

I love the colours, but choosing coloured ligs isn't for me... I've chosen clear each adjustment. Last adjustment the ortho kept pressuring me to choose a bright colour, but no, I didn't...
