Love this toothbrush...

The other day when I went for my cleaning, my hygienist gave me one of these toothbrushes with just two rows of bristles. I love it! It makes cleaning above, below and in between brackets so easy. I can't believe she waited so long to give me one! It's great for getting along the gumline too. The one she gave me is made by GUM but they're probably all pretty much the same. I might be the only one whose never seen one of these, but I thought I'd share anyway. :)
P.S. It's called a sulcus toothbrush.

Adjustment time again...

I had an adjustment today. The girl took off 4 of my brackets (ouch ~ yes I am a big baby when it comes to my teeth) so she could put them back on in different positions. Oh yay. I hate those lip stretcher things and the taste of the stuff they put on your teeth to prep them is awful. So anyway, here I am with my brackets in a new position and the same wire. She said I would probably have some "discomfort" this evening. I'm sure I will.

Update: My teeth moved so quickly that I had to go in the next day and have my upper wire clipped. Today is Saturday (4 days later) and the wire is poking my cheek again. I can't believe how fast my teeth are moving since she repositioned the brackets. I was looking last night and my two front teeth are separating. I hope they move fast enough so my teeth are ready for the surgery in December!

Lovely Picture of My Lovely Underbite

Okay, people. Be nice. My husband took this random picture of me while we were sitting at the Grove.
At first I told him to delete it, but then I thought it would be a good "before" picture. So here it is. I love the way my bottom lip is sticking out. haha
(Apparently I need to work on my posture)
