Glad you fellows are enjoying the videos! She got up to 20 elastics before it became too much.

On another not-totally-treatment-related note, I thought this was a funny picture: http://anonym.to/?https://www.flickr.com/photos/mikeinreallife/40224770371/in/dateposted/. Snapchat filters are sometimes hilarious! And you can also detect our friend's Invisalign, too, if you look closely.

Glad you like them, ortho218!

And yes, she is one of the most honest (and least self-conscious) women I've ever met.

20 ! great !
can she still open the mouth with that ?
perhaps it's a good solution to have silence during a football match with friends :-)

Yes, she could open her mouth -- barely!  ;D

She also said her mouth was sore for a few minutes after she took all the elastics out, too. (Except the ones she's actually required to wear.)

probably depend how you put it... but if you put all in the same direction, its's probably can accelerate the treatment :)
when you have removable brace, it's the same on the morning, your mouth is sore too....

Heh, the Rubber Band Challenge video was marked by YouTube as "age restricted." Wouldn't want those kids doing it, I guess!  ::)

We're off to Carrie's seventh adjustment this afternoon. We anticipate heavier elastics, possibly in a different configuration, and she may get her final/finishing wires (based on her ortho's comments last time). I'll post a report here, put pictures on Flickr, and post a YouTube video in the next day or two.

Carrie's feeling a bit of dread regarding even heavier elastics, since she had a tough time getting used to the current rubber bands. But she'll plow through, I have no doubt.
