...And it really hurts. But, I noticed my orthodontist left one of the ligatures free between the last and second to last bracket. Is this normal? I'm not worried, just curious since she was having trouble getting some of them on (and kept hitting me in the gums). There's no significant gaps on that side, though, so maybe it just wasn't needed?

Pretty sure they are meant to put elastics in every bracket but I could be wrong. But give them a call in the morning to be safe. I should imagine she would have known what she was doing so maybe decided it wasn’t necessary
