Why didn't I have my attachments put on my first 2 sets?

Sequence of treatment
There may be various reasons for this tyoe of sequencing. Often times an orthodontist will not put on attachments in the first 2-3 trays to allow the patients to get used to wearing the trays first. Once the attachments go on the teeth, it becomes slightly harder to remove the trays. Hopefully, by then the patients manual dexterity will have improved sufficiently to be able to put on/remove the trays without difficulty.
