Tuesday Tooth Report

Lots to report today! Yesterday I had another Orthodontist appointment. We changed the wires to #18 square. They are designed to widen my arch. We also added two "buttons" to the inside of teeth 2-6 and 2-7 so that elastics can be wrapped around them and their counterpart's brackets on the jaw below; resulting in 2-6 and 2-7 slowly being pulled outward to widen the back of my arch. And thus begins the process of aligning my bite. Can't wait for it to be complete! Speaking of complete, the Orthodontist doesn't want to speak too soon but she suspects this whole process will be done earlier than originally predicted. Yay!
