Great to hear from you, Lilc! Sounds like you had a great adjustment! Good news about bonding only the 4 upper incisors, too!

Your pics look great!

Bet you're really starting to get butterflies as your wedding day gets closer!

Take care :)

Hi Mike, Best of luck with the switcharoo. I know it's probably a PITA to have to get used to new brackets, but I'm sure it won't take you long! Hey, if it prevents the annoyance of having to deal with brackets popping off all the time like popcorn, it's well worth it! You've had enough to deal with...

Thanks, TI! You're right, it feels really good to see movement. It makes me more convinced than ever that I've done right by myself in embarking on this journey! The molar blocks are OK -- I'm pretty well used to them now. I've found I do have to chew carefully or I'll nip my cheeks, but that might ...

Ludington -- thanks for reminding me!

Well, your teeth look quite nice to me, but I'm for achieving the best result possible! Check with your ortho; if the small gap is the only issue remaining, maybe the elastics alone would suffice and you could go ahead with the debonding.
