I had another appointment today and got a power chain on my top teeth and elastics to wear to fix the overbite. I had been wearing one elastic for cross-bite for 2 mo...

Hello everyone! wow it is been long that I visited this form. I got my first tightning done today and my teeth are a bit sore, not a big deal though. It was not as painful as I thought it would be.

Flossing is really a pain! It takes long time and also hurts. I do it once a day before sleeping and use waterpik (water floss) everytime I eat when I am at home. At work normally I brush everytime I eat as flossing will take long time. I personally think WaterPik is a good investment. I paid 85 dol...

I have not noticed bad breath, but I do not have molar bands. I also carry these little brushes made by DenTek. They are called Easy Brush. I try to ...
