Hey Melissa! Looking good! Like you, I have elastics this month and I also have two powerchains on my bottom arch to close the gaps from pulled teeth. (I'm excited, too!!!!)

Re: question

Melissa, I was looking at your xray on page 18 with the braces on, and it looks as if there are two teeth in your jaw chin( I think that's what you were pointing out). I was wondering what do you do with that, are the teeth still there? Just curious Hi Amanda, those aren't extra teeth, those are 2 ...

I just looked at the size of the elastics you have...holy crap, no wonder you're in so much pain! Those things are tiny! I can't imagine having to change those 3-4 times a day... it's hard enough trying to change the bigger ones. I hope I don't ever have those 1/8" ones... can you imagine how painfu...
