[quote="djspeece"] Let your general dentist do the general stuff, but in no way let him deal with your braces. Orthodontics is too complicated for someone who does it on a part-time basis and without the proper training and experience. You'll read plenty of horror stories here about issues created w...

Re: Do I need all of these before braces because wtf

[quote="bbsadmin"]Nobody here can answer your question. You need to ask your dentist and orthodontist why you need so many root canals and acid etchings. Generally this sort of thing isn't required before braces unless you have serious issues with your teeth.[/quote]
