Re: The BEST flossing tip I didn't know!

I bought the floss that is already attached to the threader. It is specifically for braces. I love it.

Re: What did your ortho "give" you?

I got a nifty travel case that includes:

And a tee shirt

I love my case and use it everyday!

Re: 44 yrs old, got braces yesterday so far so good

Best of luck to you! I got my clear braces on 3 weeks ago. I was so nervous cause of my age but my ortho and his staff have been so wonderful. Everyone has been so supportive. I am glad I started this journey and I am sure you will be too!

Advice: Bands on teeth with crowns?

I just got my braces on my top teeth. My ortho put the bands on my lower molars which are crowns so he could put braces on them in a few weeks. They did not fit correctly and had to take them off after a few days. Now he is going to cut the bands on one and bond the other one only to the outside of ...

Re: NEWBIE HERE

Good luck! I denied my teeth were so crooked. Then I became a "grandma" and that is when all the photos were up close with the babies. That is when I realized how bad they had shifted.

My teeth shifted so much in my 50's. After much research I finally decided that braces were the only way to go. I love my clear braces. Most people do not even notice them.

57 and braces again

After several years of denying that my teeth had shifted way too much I have decided to get braces again. I got clear braces 2 weeks ago on my top teeth. I had to have the bands taken off the bottom teeth because they are crowns and didn't fit correctly. Now I will go back next week for them to desi...
