Bond in my teeth

Ok... so I just finished brushing and flossing night 1 of braces... I think the Ortho. got bond inbetween two of my teeth and as hard as I tried I couldn't get floss through. Is this a problem? Should I just let it be or should I call them?

Braces here I come!

When he said "fantastic" I started to have hope! And I was right... 1 week from today, Thursday the 30th, I'll be getting ...

Molar Bands and Root Canals
