second adjustment

I saw two of my dental 'team' yesterday, firstly Dr Ellis my prosthodontist who works on the appearance of my teeth i.e. my composites (since my teeth aren't very good - check my first post for details). She just gave me a look-over and told me I was doing fine with my brushing which was great :)
Then I went downstairs to see my ortho. She was extremely pleased that none of my brackets had come loose and moved me onto a new wire! I'm sore today but I really don't care, i'm so pleased everything is working as it should do. I got lilac ligs (shamelessly, because my nails are lilac at the minute and I wanted them to match - such a girl).
Unfortunately I left my memory card at uni and i'm home for a month for the holidays so I won't be able to post pictures until I get back on January 16th, but I can tell you that things are looking good, especially those teeth at the front. Dr Ellis even mentioned the possibility of not having surgery.. I was amazed at that! However if surgery is going to give me a better result then I 100% want it, firstly because it's covered by the NHS so I won't have to pay a penny, and also because I think now i've got the braces I might as well go all the way and get my jaw fixed too.
Merry Christmas to all my braced blogger friends!
