In my case, I understand that I'm supposed to have a light overbite, but as she admitted the other day, my teeth have room for an extra 1mm or so worth of intrusion, it's not much, but to me it is worth it. At the e...

Re: Tartar plaque around brackets

@Meowmeowbeans2 : Once you see those white lines it might be too late to scrub with just the interdental brush. You could buy a dental scaler kit and carefully remove the plaque built up.

Re: Extraction gap closure time

Mine took almost 2 years to close. My left canine took a long time to move toward the molar, once it did, it didn't take too long close the rest of the gaps.

Re: Whitening your teeth BEFORE braces?
