    Welcome!

    It'll be interesting to see how many trays you end up with after the extraction. My ortho had predicted 18. I had 24 trays for my initial round and 22 trays in refinements.

    Your IP address is the same as one used by spammers. That's why your previous ID was banned. There were 10 IDs created that day from the same location.

    Yes, you should brush your teeth after every meal, unless you'd like cavities underneath your brackets when you get your braces off.

    Wow! Great progress :)

    It's up to your ortho whether you'll do overcorrection or skip it and go to refinements. I ended up having to do the overcorrection on the top, but not the bottom, trays.
