Got brackets on upper jaw - unwired

So, two days ago, I got my third (and hopefully the last) extraction done from my upper jaw. Now it was time to put my braces on the upper jaw. First up, only the brackets were placed on the upper jaw. They use a bonding glue to put up these brackets on the front line of teeth.

The lower line looks different because the arch wires on the lower jaw were replaced in the middle.

The arch wires would be pulled across the upper line on a later visit. For now, i needed to give a measurement of my lower jaw for bite plates to be made of my size.
