The bands have come off the first molars. Yay! Now I have power chains so that the gaps made by the bands will close. Dr. Schrodi made sure that they are not too tight, just tugging a tiny little bit. I have to pay attention that the now free molars are not moving inward or outward which they sometimes do. If they do, I have to call her immediately for an emergency appointment.
I love the color of my power chains, it's a light purple. The ortho assistant complimented me on the choice.
