Since I lisp horribly and noone can understand me, I stopped wearing them during classes which are usually only 3-4 hours a day. Haven't had any shifting to note. Right now I'm working my way throug...

Even better, I got my concealed pistol license when I had braces, so of course I did a serious face. I really look like a serial killer in it.

I don't know if you're aware, but at least in the US you have to be licenced and certified as an ortho assistant. Not just go in and learn on the job. At least all my ortho assistants were.

Pee before sitting down, you'll be there awhile. Relax. Take some tylonal, but the pain usually doesn't start really till that night, or the next morning. The pain goes away in a few days.
