week 133

Well, I'm still in braces at week 133. Looking better and better. Still have a huge space between two upper left molars.. No other space anywhere else to close. The bottom ones have moved ahead.

I had cereal in the morning after brushing. Lunch was chicken kebab with rice and vegetables and I did brush.

For dinner, it was some rice and then pastry. I did brush before bed.

a guy in braces

I met a guy in braces. He had metallic brackets on top and bottom. With silver ligatures. He also has a TPA! I did not get a chance to see it as it was dark and we were in a crowd. He's had both braces and the TPA for 6 months now and has 1.5 more months to go with both braces and the TPA. He says that at first the TPA was hard to get used to and he could not speak well at all. But that gradually got better he continued.
We talked for a long time about both our treatments, cost, length, why we got braces, etc. It was a lot of fun indeed. He actually said he had paid only 50% of his cost. Lucky guy.

I did see a lady in braces too, but no chance to say hello. She had silver powerchains across the top and bottom.
