When I got braces last July, I don't think anyone noticed for like the first 3 months. I'm wearing ceramic on top and bottom. One day, my supervisor was like "Gio, when did you get braces?" I was like, ummm, about 3 months ago. So it was kind of funny! People who do notice them, often wonder "WoW, w...

Now, that I know is common. Not changing the wires. They only change them every so often. The thickness in wires are for different things. If I am correct, they use the thicker wires when alignment is almost set or if they don't need as much force to move your teeth. With my treatment, they used sof...

Since I've had braces, only 1 or 2 popped off by themselves. However, I've popped off 2 by accident. 1 popped off while eating fried chicken. I know, I know. It was on the No NO list. 1 popped off while eating a salad. I was actually shocked that it popped off because I had braces on for a while and...

Hi, Nowadays, molds aren't really used too much these days. It just depends on the ortho. At least thats what my ortho told me. I've used the same ortho twice. 11 years ago, and this year. He used molds the first time, and this time around he did not. I guess, since technology has advanced, some ort...
