Re: Metal bands?

i only have one molar band on my 2nd upper molar. My ortho will move my 2nd and 3rd molar forward because I dont have a 1st molar.

the other molars have no bands, only brackets.

Re: Mexico & Costa Rica

Hello! I am in Mexico right now and would like to get braces in Mexico City. I am so scared of getting braces again, as it is the second time around, since adolescence! It's to correct the big mistake made when I was a teenager, where the orthodontist destroyed my smile. Can anyone recommend an abs...

Re: Teeth hurt again?

I got self ligating braces and had pain in bottom front teeth and some pain on top teeth but went away after 4 days. I dont want to take any pain relievers either because that might slow down tooth movement
