The braces came off this morning!!!!!!!
Hated to do the moulds for the retainers. I have a small mouth and it was really tough.
The bottom retainer is bonded in, how do I floss?
I'll ask when my kids go this afternoon.
Now to look into whitening my teeth.

I think I may miss the braces

My braces have been on for 4 years 7 months and 1 week and come off tomorrow. I can't remember when I last saw the molar bands. I know they are still there but the gums have grown over them. My ortho says that is normal and that I have really small teeth and not to worry.

They are used for lots of things such as closing gaps and keeping teeth close together. I have had them on my top teeth for at least a year. The grey chain that is smaller than the rest works faster and puts more tension or force on the teeth. The colored chains in my ortho's office are bigger and d...

Both my son and myself have braces. He is 12 and got his in August and I have had mine for 2 years. I also have a 13 year old daughter who will get them as soon as her baby teeth finish falling out (or are Pulled).
