Re: My Story - 28/F - Metal Braces

I LOVE the pink ligs! :HugeGrin: Did your ortho say anything to you about needing molar buildups or bumpers?

Hi friends, I decided since I'm (FINALLY) braced, I would go ahead and post my story here. I've posted most of this info around the boards but I wanted to consolidate everything.

Re: Can I use my elec toothbrush on 6 month smile?

Re: Finally got my braces wahoo!!

Hi EmBee! I had all 4 wisdom teeth and a baby tooth extracted last Thursday - the first couple days were tough but after that I got better MUCH faster.
