I have an issue with the shape of my jaw that causes a deep overbite condition to recur. When I was a teenager / young adult, surgery was not available to correct the problem. Adult orthodontics moves the teeth and not the jaw. Over time, my teeth tend to move back to where they were, requiring re-...

I just want to make a 'general' reply to many of the things said in this thread. First of all, my dad had amazing dental insurance, so we got VERY good care as children. (But realize, some health insurance does NOT include dental as a rider..so this becomes an out-of-pocket expense that can build up...

Although, I have to admit that when I go to Oral-B's web site, a LOT of the power brushes seem to feature the same things (3D brushing, quad-timer, battery indicator, brush indicator, charging station, a place to store additional brush heads, the ability to use different brush heads, etc). So, are a...

I know this thread is kind of old (was started last month), but I was just going through the debate of getting a sonicare or an oral b and which one! ANYWAY, I came across this thread and it does sound like most prefer oral b, but I have to make one very small complaint.... WHY DIDN'T MY ORTHO GIVE ...

Just wondering but has anyone asked their photographer if they can photoshop the braces off? I've heard of it being done before. I mean I am not sure how expensive it is but it can't be too hard. I get the whole not wanting to have them when being married but it just seems to be more of a hassle. I...

I've been to GOOGLE.COM...ever hear of it? ;) But seriously, I've done searches about molar bands and a L...

Hmm...that's not on my list either, but I'm not sure if I've eaten them. I feel like I have (at a superbowl party, especially). Are tortilla chips different from any other kind of chip? Because I know I've eaten regular potato chips. However, I don't eat chips often. Also, I don't have my bottom bra...

Questions/concerns about molar bands. HELP!!

Hi everyone! I'm new here (just registered), but have had braces for the past 7 to 8 months...on the top only. Last appointment (Wed) my ortho told me I'd be getting my lower brackets on next appointment (in 3 weeks). She also told me I'd be getting molar bands because I'd be using rubber bands. A ...

Flaka, I told my ortho I was getting married next year (which is now THIS YEAR) when I was originally thinking of getting braces. She told me that she can take off the front ones (I'm going to assume the front FOUR or maybe 6, but def not 8?) and give me a clear retainer so there would be no braces ...
