Re: Waterpik or Airflosser?

From what I've read, Waterpik is better than Airflosser.

I have a waterpik (not that brand) and I wouldn't change it for the world. My mouth feels so amazingly clean after using it!

Re: No Wire Change?

I obviously know nothing about your case specifically, but I know that in mine, my ortho said he has to make my overbite worse in order to be able to fix my bite properly at the end.

Re: Brand new to braces at 28

I'm already noticing changes already, and it's crazy.

But my lisp is getting worse and not better, which is extremely annoying...but at least I can eat.

Re: Brand new to braces at 28

Thanks! So this is day 5 and things are still going well. I've eaten real food (chicken nuggets), although that was not an easy task to do at all...and I've taken the wax (well, Mack's silicone earplugs as I was suggested elsewhere) off because I think my mouth is tough enough to handle the wires. A...

Brand new to braces at 28

Hey guys! As the title says - I'm 28, and I this is my first time with braces! I got my braces yesterday morning, and so far so good. I got ceramic on the front 6 top teeth, and metal on the rest (bottoms will go on in a few months), and I love the choice! Yes, the ceramics are larger, but I think i...

Re: Traditional braces at 28

I think that I'm going to do color...probably baby blue or light pink.

Re: No pictures were taken?

I had pictures and x-rays taken, and a 3D scan of my mouth (instead of molds)

Re: Metal or Ceramic?

Does anyone have a source with empirical evidence? Because what you guys are saying is exactly where the conflicting views come from since people on both sides will usually argue for their side. I'm sure no one cares (except me of course), but I also know that people would notice - at least I would ...

Re: Braces Newb at 28

Thanks...but that's just one article out of the hundreds I'm sure there are, and the views are very conflicting - there is no consistent answer, even with the orthodontists I've spoken with. Either way, I just know I want my tops and bottoms to match because I always have everything match. My OCD do...

Metal or Ceramic?

I'm getting braces in about a month and a half, and I'm trying to decide whether I should get metal or clear. I've heard conflicting things about clear -- some people say that it's just as good as metal with the only real difference being the color, and others say that they're not because they don't...
