Re: Which electric toothbrush do you have and why did you choose it?

I currently have the Oral B with my braces. I do buy the ortho heads for it. I used the sonicare in the past and I didn't really care for it.

Re: Not comfortable wearing elastics (jaw surgery process)

What I've realized is the only control I have over my treatment is to wear my elastics. I've also learned that your bite will get worse before it gets better and it all comes together in the end. I would discuss with the ortho how you are feeling about the elastics and maybe he can help you feel mor...

Re: ok, I've got options. Which way should I go?
