Hi Ken,
I'm from Ohio too! It is really cold and the wind has been howling here today. The pictures were worth the wait. I am too shy for grape, but I do go for sparkle, which is what happens now when I open my mouth. My husband gives me looks just to make me smile at him. He is getting more weird in his "golden" years. Looking forward to your ortho visit story.

Hi Ken! In purple :lol:

Your pics are really nice, those powerchains are great colour! :thumbsup: It was worth waiting for them!
The gaps are much closer, these powerchains are great and doing their job!

I hope your tenderness and soreness will go away soon and you can enjoy your grapes. :D

See you later!

I like the color! I'm not really a purple person, but sometime down the road I may have to give it a whirl!

Hi Ken,
I am in the southern greater cleveland area-- lots of lake effect weather. I love your graphics, they always make me laugh. You have become an expert in their use. Maybe I'll start out with pearl ligs and work my way up to purple towards the end. Every day is different so far, with lots of different emotions and strange toothy feelings, and unpleasant random pains in tmj areas and side of head. Did you have these kinds of experiences too? I guess because everything is connected everything else, it makes sense.
Ruth :)

Hi Ken, I hope you sleep well tonight. It has already been a very long day for you.
My TMJ specialist is the one doing my braces. I had bilateral reconstructive surgery in '91, but still have some issues. Certainly not like before, thank goodness! (Some of my story is posted on the bracket club-- sort of put it in the wrong place, I guess-- around mid january--"Pre-golden years...").
Sleep tight! (Reference goes back to when the beds on the bottom were strung with cord and you had to tighten them up every now and then- or fall through the bottom!)
Yawn. Ruth :wink:

I was so busy this weekend I didn't even get to take a look at your pics! LOVE the powerchains Ken...pretty snazzy. You are coming along very will I will add. Looking forward to pics after those new powerchains do there work. I am thinking that are really gonna get those teeth moving epsecially since no chains were skipped. Good luck!

4 days until my adjustment and most likely purple in my lig choice as well.

Hi Ken, I love the look of this purple "line" from left to right! Looks cool! I compared your first pic to this last one and WOW, great progress!!

My midline is off too, it really stinks to not have the midline correct. But I never realized how many people going through orthodontic treatment had this problem!

Keep up the great progress and CONGRATS!!!

Nice progress. I can't help myself but think if you are a smoker or not. I see that your gums are receded more than what I'm used to seeing. Actually my father's teeth are the same shade but his gums are normal. Perhaps you can shed some light on this.
