Re: Need advise regarding poking wire

may sound weird but a bit of pencil eraser might work.if not the best way to get the wax to stick is completely dry it off back there and use a big gob of the wax around both the back bracket and wire thats sticking out all in one, the bracket will help the wax stay put.hope this helps!

Re: anyone else have their braces put on via Indirect Bondin

[quote="newbite"]I'm getting it done in a little over two weeks! My ortho didn't give me an option, I guess he pretty much always does indirect bonding.

Re: Getting braces in three weeks - any advice for a newbie?

Re: Permanent retainers after treatment complete?
