Re: Daughter's teeth

That's great to hear. Even my wisdom teeth at my age shifted my arch. That's one of the reasons my TMJ orthodontist put braces back on me back then.wisdom teeth removed. Teeth and Arch back in place and the braces removed.been in bonded and removable Hawley retainers ever since. :tingrin:

DAWN dish soap, put water in a cup enough to cover them add about ten or so drops of soap mix add retainers , just like soaking pots and pans , cheap works great :jump:
