Re: Question for you guys

I also find it annoying when a chat window pops up, but I won't leave a site unless the chat window pops up multiple times in the same session after I decline it. I think it would be good to have a way for a client to initiate chat. I personally prefer to email questions.

Re: No Flossing with Waterpik?

My ortho told me using a Waterpik doesn't replace flossing. Right now, I have a lot of places where I can't wedge floss between my teeth. I'm can still fit Soft-picks right against the gumline in most of those places, so I'm doing that instead. I figure it's better than nothing.

Re: What was your first meal/food after braces?

I don't have any chewing surfaces that touch now, because my brackets get in the way of shifting my mouth around to match up chewing surfaces like I did before I got braces. I was prepared to need soft food; not being able to chew at all came as a shock. I started with a cut-up banana and string che...

Re: Braces at 40

I turned 40 about a month ago, and got my Damons yesterday. I'm glad that I am doing this, as I've got rather annoying bite issues. Right this second, I'll admit that I am having to tell myself it'll get better as my mouth gets used to all these little pokey things (brackets, not wires). :)

Re: Molar bands

I have brackets on two of my back molars, and I'm getting the molar bands on the other two because they just couldn't get the brackets to stick and thought they'd tortured me enough for one day. I don't have any fillings, crowns, or anything else on those teeth.
