Re: Hi! Finally its happening ;)

Hello, everyone. I've had mine a month now. I haven't had any pain. Just a steady pressure which gets worse after eating and after brushing. The waterpik jet stream really sooths any discomfort.

I can see spaces between the upper middle teeth and some of the lower also. My teeth are severely crowded. (I am...
