Aw! thank you ^^ How are the retainers going?Hawleys are metal right? I'm pretty used to the clear upper and the bonded doesn't cut my tongue anymore. The one thing about clear retainers is that I put it down after i clean and lose it! so I spend my whole entire night wandering around looking for it...

I chew gum all the time.. It doesn't do anything.
In fact I've probably broken every rule on the NO-NO list, but never broke wires bands or brackets and I've always had good feed back from my ortho. yay!

But yeah I probably wouldnt chew gum with hard coatings with thin wires.... Or whitening gum.

The first time I got powerchains they hurt really bad. Towards the end when your getting ready to get your braces off, powerchains dont hurt at all =] They hurt because the roots are straightening up rapidly. But I guess it depends on your pain tolerence. Isn't it surprising how gaps can close in ma...
