So I had my checkup this past Tuesday. It was a little different, because my usual assistant was gone (on vacation), I was in a different chair, and the original orthodontist saw me (versus the newer one, who saw me the last two times). I got that attachment off (whoo! that tooth feels SO smooth), and a little bit of IPR (though that was SHORT and sweet! Apparently there are already spaces between the teeth due for the IPR), and I left with Trays 26-28.
I realized that, if I keep getting 3 trays/visit, I only have 3 more visits to get all my trays, and will be done with phase 1 in 4 visits! Even though that's 6 weeks between visits, it's nice to think of it in those terms, and doesn't seem as long that way :)
Although it's still not tracking completely well, especially on the tooth with the recently-removed attachment, I feel it's doable and think I can get through this without a mid-course correction. Don't want to jinx it though!
Well, I have to leave for dance class soon, but here's a shot of my top teeth tonight, starting to settle into Tray 26:
