I think we're going to do a couple of more videos between now and Carrie's next adjustment (October 12th). The first will be about her Braces Survival Kit, a cool little item I picked up from Dentakit right before she got her braces.

The other potential vid is a Q&A. This is an idea I got from a member here. I doubt we'll do it on YouTube Live, but if you have questions you want her/us to answer, post them here or send them to me in PM. If there's sufficient interest, we'll do the Q&A.

Driving to Rhode Island from Boston, Carrie reminded me that she's now been in braces six months. How time flies! She's a third of the way through with treatment already.

Carrie had her fourth adjustment yesterday. It was nothing earthshaking. They took an x-ray, went to a stronger archwire on the bottom, and left the top wire the same. She chose silver ligs and power chain. The way the ortho talked, it seemed like keeping the power chain was sort of optional, but he recommended keeping it and so she did. She still has the bite stoppers, but they're going to move some brackets at her next appointment, so she may finally be freed of those accursed things in late November. Still no elastics. I have to say that I REALLY like the look of the silver ligs/chain.

I'll be putting a video on YouTube today or tomorrow, so stand by!
