Officially, I have under 5 months to go! (See the countdown.)

In the beginning, it was all about how well the Damon braces worked, how my orthodontist and his assistants did their job.

But NOW, it’s up to me.  My rubber band compliance is key.

So what’s a good compliance rate?

If I wore the elastics all day, except for three hours–one hour break for each meal–that would be 21 hours.  Let’s say that’s 100% compliance.

My guess is I’m at least 75% compliant these day.  That’s eight hours of sleep–I ALWAYS wear them for sleeping–and let’s say at least another eight hours during the day.

But, will that be enough?  I’m going to keep track the next few days.  Because I don’t want my behavior to slow this down!
