More elastics - class 2 configuration and midline adjustment

Same wires. Ligs are dark purple this time. I have to wear elastics in a class 2 figuration + one additional on the right side. For the day, the additional one is as in last month's configuration (see first picture). For the night, from second on top to last on bottom (see second picture). Can't do both at the same time because the self-made hook on the second tooth would break with two elastics. The class 2 configuration is to adjust how far the back teeth are behind the front. The additional elastic is because the upper midline is shifted to the left a little bit and teeth top and bottom don't align quite right yet.

One day before adjustment

This picture is taken one day before the next adjustment.
