Sensodyne whitening toothpaste, but not the usually tube. Its some kind of foamy toothpaste that come...

My husband can't hear me half the time. So he seems like he is ignoring me. Is it the braces or his hearing, I don't know. I have a hard time speaking lately. I'm sure it'll get better.

Post extraction bad breath.

My extractions were a week and a day ago. They were very complicated and involved extra roots, a drill, some crazy instruments, and an irate patient tripping on the gas. They left me with some pretty nasty holes and a gash that runs from one of the holes into my gumline. That being said, a week late...

I too was very worried about what others might think. I work in sales (real estate) Its one thing if my coworkers are judging me, I can handle that, but would my clients take me seriously? Yesterday was my first listing presentation with three day old bite blocks. I couldn't speak to save my life. I...

I want to try to be as optimistic about this as possible, as to not scare people to death of getting braces. My extraction holes are still very very painful. Probably because the dentist spent a long time digging in there and used the hand piece quite a bit. For what I don't know I didn't ask. I go...

Extraction day! All I can say is, if I ever have to do that again...they had better knock me out! I drove myself because everyone who had volunteered to go with me was busy or sick or not to be found. I was very very nervous. I guess the doctor could tell, because he immediately offered the gas. He ...

Hi Audra, I am about a year and a half from surgery. I fully realize that I will have to quit smoking in order to have surgery. I have quit in the past for other major surgery and will have to again. Not a problem ever in Canada, you can't smoke anywhere ( including in your own car if you have pets ...

Any experiences with clear damons and staining

Before I got the clear damons on my teeth I asked several times, more than one assistant/hygienist and the dentist....do these things stain? I was told no by everyone. Okay the glue can stain...thats why we're cleaning it up and making it so neat.... But, I have one front central incisor where the b...

Larryboy56-Congrats on taking the big plunge. I have decided if anyone has a problem with my braces then they would have a problem with something else if it wasn't that. Right? I had a boyfriend who was forty and had braces. Hes the only other adult I have ever met who had braces. I didn't think muc...
