Checking the gums

I decided to stay at home and leave for the other trip (to Berkeley) after this appointment. Since I've been using my waterpik and my usual toothpaste etc., the specialist didn't see any immediate danger, but recommended periodontal maintenance every two months until I'm finished with the braces.

Just a little longer

I went to my first ortho appointment after returning from Australia. It turns out that I didn't wear the elastics quite long enough. So, I still have to wear them for a little while. They were concerned with my gums, though, so I'll have an appointment with a specialist in a couple of weeks.
