Tray 9 is in

Sitting here listening to Thievery Corporation on Pandora while playing with my braces.  They popped in and out this time with significantly less trouble than usual for a fresh tray.

I normally swap trays on Sunday, but I forgot and didn't swap them until last night.   Nine trays... wow can't believe it's been 18 weeks already...  I still have a ways to go, but I'm feeling better about my smile each time I do an update.

Tray 9.

What a mug.
Not a whole lot going on so I'll keep this one short.  Oh.. When I saw the dentist she said there was some inflamation in the upper left (right side facing) and that I need to be a little more diligent with the flossing.  To be honest I hadn't flossed much since, maybe three times.  I need to get better, but it seems I can barely remember to floss and rinse after meals now.  I was so on it in the beginning, but have lost alot of momentum as far as my personal wellbeing goes.  I haven't been on my walks, or any of the other myriad of things I should be doing to stave off my meloncolly.  Is that even spelled right?  Anyway... enough stream of consciousness crud.  I'm going to go talk a short walk.

Tray 7 and 8 A double Post

Realized I forgot to post about my last tray.  Things have been busy at work, and I just kind of forgot.

Here is the grill

Tray 7
 Tray 7 got stained this time around.  Forgot to take my braces out when I was trying to cleanup an icecream cone my little boy was about to topple onto the ground.  It was a green and orange sherbert ninja turtle from the ice cream truck and made my braces glow bright green for a couple days.   It wore out a bit, but you can definitely tell the color was off.

Tray 8

Tray 8 is in now.   Hurts a little bit on the front two teeth, but nothing like the past ones.
My upper canine is getting into place which is awesome.  I can feel the difference in my alignment.  20 Trays left to go, time is going by fast!  I need to play with the whitening stuff, but just haven't had the time nor inclination...  Maybe around Tray 10.
