Re: Day 1 of Many

Holy smokes! Sounds like your first experience was a disaster. I can't imagine going through a traumatic experience like that and taking a chance again, but it sounds like your ortho is great. Here's to a better time this go around.

Re: Just saying hello

In regards to cleaning a bite plate, I would call your ortho's office just to be sure, but I use denture cleaner for my mouth guard. I imagine it would work for a bite plate as well.

Re: Ortho treatment at same time as child

My 12 year old son got his expander and top braces on August 9, and I got mine on March 9. I figured if I had to take him to appointments every few weeks I might as well go ahead and knock mine out. My 10-year-old daughter also have a consult the same day I had mine. The ortho wants to wait another ...
