Thank you all so much. I'm working on finishing up my video which I will eventually post a link to, I have some more tweaking to do though.
I wore my retainer for the first time last night and it hurt. Hopefully I get used to it. :| Over the last two years I developed a habit of using my tongue to clean out my brackets and I kept trying to do it yesterday after I ate. :lol:

It looks like another person's mouth! I love how wide your smile got. I hope mine does that! You have PERFECT teeth!

It is amazing how ortho changes everything, not just the teeth. The shape of my face and profile already look different after three months. Kicking myself for not doing this, say, 40 years ago... :cry:
