Re: Essix retainers (after braces) used to align teeth?

Re: Going Clear: the third time round

hi Alex, do your ortho mention about how long the treatment will be? how long had you been in braces for first & second braces?
anyway, i have a familiar story with you but i don't think i will have a chance to do the third because i got TMD.
