28 days is way to long. My ortho does essix in house. even if you don't need as essix he makes you one while the your hawley is being made out in the lab. You need something to keep your teeth stable.

You can also get a prescription mouthwash called Clorahexidine (sp) I get my teeth cleaned every three months. There is nothing wrong with that. Then I floss a...

I had a frenectomy done when I was 16. It does not hurt, I did not even know they did it for the longest. The OS said if he had not taken it out then the gums would push my teeth apart and the gap would reform. They just cut of that peice of gum and put one little stich in it.

My sense of smell has left me....

I have noticed that ever since my surgery my sense of smell is almost non existent (sp?) Even when I change my son's diaper I barley smell a thing...and my rascal is a very potent baby! :lol:
Even flowers smell dull. Has this happened to anybody? It has been 4 months since surgery.

Since you are in the setteling stage they will probably be taking lots of measurements of you rbite, and doing little tweaks here and there. Your appointment can take up to 40 min, but might not take that long. March is right around the corner!
