Re: Panicking

i think that if you had the extractions last week there aren´t many possibilities developing a dry sockets.
my bottom extractions were bleeding almost one week after, and my dentist told me that it in normal, nothing to worry about!

Re: Would this affect the movement of my teeth? (Read thread please)

Re: Changed back to smaller wires

Re: "Go To" Meals After Bracing, Adjustment, or Extractions
