Can you guys confirm your experience with any ...

Re: What type of floss do you use?

Thanks!

I just worked out I have been doing it wrong. I was trying to thread it through the space between my teeth instead up up through the bracket.

Re: What type of floss do you use?

This is almost a year later so hopefully that's ok? I am new to the board and braces and not sure if I'm flossing right. It feels like a dumb question actually but here goes. I start with with the stiff end which I thread through then use the floss just as I would normally, right? What I'm concerned...

Re: How many surgeons did you consult?

I just went with the orthodontist my dentist referred me to and then the maxifillio surgeon she works with...or the group she works with. I chose the only female surgeon at the clinic and m...

Braces and Double Jaw Surgery to come. A little worried about root resorption!

Hi! I am 46 and now on my fourth day of being a brace face! This has been a long time coming and I wasn't entirely sure I was going to actually start this journey until the day I did it so in a way, it almost feels like an impulse decision! So a little bit about my particular situation. I had braces...
