In Canada and the U.S. could it be the same as Aquafresh Extreme Clean? The description says it foams up too.

Edit: Nope, they're two different products. Canada just hasn't cought up yet.

Sonicare- Best One in List

From my orthodontist I got a coupon for $15 off of the purchase of the Sonicare Flexcare, Elite or Essence series. Which model is the best?

Also with the Flexcare model you can get the optional UV Brush head sanitizer. Is it really worth it?

Is a Sonicare worth it?

Thank you!

Hi Folks, I haven't been on in awhile. Been busy with exams. I don't have pictures from my last adjustment. I forgot. I had grey powerchains on the top and light purple ligs on the bottom. That adjustment I was diagnosed with tongue thrust. I brought it up and he asked me to swallow. I did a few tim...

linda21 was it your ortho's idea or was it yours. How do you suggest I approach my ortho about this idea. Do you have pics of the lower bonded with and without essix on top? If not could you please do so?

Thanks! :)

I *do* however, like ILOVEMACS, get all sorts of "oooh"'s, "ahhh"'s and compliments on how clean my brackets and hardware are. Which is a pretty big deal to me, since my oral hygiene as a child was less than stellar...not to mention I have upper and lower expanders with big hunks of acrylic in the ...

I had an adjustment on Apr. 29. It was pretty basic. Same old... same old. They took the powerchain off. Then the bottom ligs. The ortho popped by, took out the wires, then put new ones in. But different powerchains on the top in the same colour. He put blue ligs on the bottom. They complimented me ...

Bonder Retained and Essix

I haven't got my braces off yet and won't for a while. At my consult at the beginning of my "journey" they said I'd get an Essix retainer on the top arch and a bonded retainer on the bottom. I was wondering has anyone had a bonded retainer on the bottom and also had an Essix retainer to wear at nigh...
