Re: Working in Healthcare with Braces

I don't work in healthcare, but I do have a crazy busy job and full-time school. I'm getting my braces on Monday and I'm worried about how I will find the time during the day to take care of them! I figure I'm paying plenty of money so I'll find the time no matter what! That's so true. Once your pa...

Re: Braces treatment almost over , need suggestions

I'd say squarish verging on curved edges of said square. Mine are currently jagged edged, especially my lowers, but my ortho will be filing mine when all is said and done. Still, all a matter of preference. :wink:

Working in Healthcare with Braces

I'm curious to know how many of us work in the rampant healthcare industry and finding time around a busy schedule to care for your teeth. What if you never make it to lunch? What if your working in a busy intensive care unit or ER? Maybe you have to be in the OR for 16 hours. Or maybe you a CNA in ...

Re: Intro - new Damon wearer

Welcome! I'm new to Archwired but also new to Damon Braces. I have clear tops and metal bottoms. I kinda have the mentality of "bring on the pain" when it comes to this new journey. Although I'm only five days in I'm looking forward to the elastics. I expect to be very diligent. :)

Re: Newbie on board!

I am new as well, 5 days with Damon braces and looking forward to this journey. I've had my share of shredding inside my cheeks and lips sucked to my braces lol but I've since became best friends with wax and good old H20 to curb those effects.

Re: What toothpaste and mouthwash are you using?

I use an all natural toothpaste I purchased at Whole Foods by Boutinique and a mouthwash called TheraFresh which is colorless. Initially I was using my Crest 3D white and found that to be a no-no along with my Crest ProHealth mouthwash that would stain my clear brackets blue...

Re: Cleaning Regimen

I've had my Damons in for five days now and my routine is becoming less and less time consuming as I've gained speed. I'm a little more extensive in my nightly routine, however, for purposes of a "deep cleen." --brush with organic toothpaste , rinse with TheraFresh mouthwash --brush with any travel ...
