Well, here it is ... two months already. Time is definitely flying by.
I managed to sneak in to the Orthodontist's office last week after my appointment with my Optometrist (one of the benefits of military medicine is all of the doctors offices are co-located within the hospital). My eyes were dilated and I didn't feel like driving by braille 40 miles back to work in the middle of the day (and it was a sunny day to boot) so I checked with the Orthodontist's secretary to see if there had been any cancellations / no-shows. Luckily for me there was and I got in to see him right away.
During the visit he removed the archwires (and surgical hooks) and I was able to floss and brush without interference (Yay!) for the first time in months ... it was awesome. He then replaced the archwires and had me start using rubber bands again - he wants try and align the midlines a bit more. My next appointment with the surgeons is on 5 June and my Orthodontist follow-up appointment is three weeks after that.
Things are progressing nicely ... in fact, the changes are so minimal now that there's really not alot to post about. I'll do the best I can with the updates so I hope ya'll check back again.
