Sorry you haven't been feeling well, PP . I hope everything turns out OK when you get the results of your blood workup. I've been wondering how you're doing. I couldn't see the pic for some reason, so I'm unable to comment on it, but I'm glad you're seeing some progress with the teeth lining up. Her...

Granola, I'm really glad rage31 stopped by; otherwise I would have missed your latest posts as well as your debonded pics. You've got to be thrilled with how the teeth turned out; they look really beautiful! Perfect alignment (at least it seems so to me) and perfectly symmetrical arches. What a tre...

Hi Shopbob, and congratulations! I don't have linguals, but here's the "Rainbow Passage" that's published elsewhere hear in numerous places.

Really great that your wayward tooth is now on its way forward, Chris!

A little hard to tell from the pic -- what's that running from the spring to the wayward lateral? Very interesting configuration!

Welcome Liz!

Yes, it does get easier with practice! I do highly recommend stiff-ended floss (Oral-B SuperFloss is the one I've been using) rather than floss threaders -- I find it so much easier to use!

to cwatt1 : are you using a digital camera? If so, there's usually a setting for what's called 'macro' or 'digital macro', it allows for clear closeups like seriously has here! I've found I get the best results with such a setting. Thanks for the tip, Katherine! Yeah, actually I am using the "close...

Rainy, you can certainly see your teeth are aligning beautifully! Amazing progress so far!

You must be really excited about the car -- I don't blame you! My first NEW car was a 1977 Chevy Nova -- not very exciting, but serviceable. Guess that dates me, huh? :lol:

Smiley, if I were your ortho I'd be pleased that you take such an interest in your oral health and in what's being done!

Hopefully that bracket doesn't pop on you anymore now.

Great pics, Seriously! I wish I could take closeups like that, but I think my camera isn't quite good enough.

Yes, you can really see the movement in the lower arch!

Good luck this week, Ken!

Love hearing about the Vega. But maybe since it has and Olds rear it should be called a Vegmobile... :lol:

Great you figured out what was going on with the hotrod. Sounds like it was pretty puzzling -- amazing how these things sometimes work out so simply.

Welcome, Odessa! All the best for your upcoming b-day. Are you starting to get butterflies in your stomach yet? :lol: I agree with the previous posts about bracket types. Whatever your ortho has experience with and is comfortable using will create the best result for you. I have metal brackets and l...
