Re: braces or invisalign

I would not trust a child to be responsible enough for the trays. My daughter needs near constant nagging to wear her retainer.

Re: Braces with your kids

Re: Confess your orthodontic sins.

I don't floss every single day. They still tell me I have healthy gums. I did double up on my bands, especially at night. I believe that helped. I was to wear my retainer 24/7 for the first year, at 8 months I was wearing it 12 hours/day at best. That all changed last week. I ate tons of popcorn. I ...
