Hey Melliemoo,

I have noticed that my lower left molars are harder to floss between and they hurt when I bite so maybe they are moving more :-) I really want my canines to start moving though!

Hey everybody, Well its day 4 of my journey. My front teeth seem to be getting less sensitive now. My left molars seem to still be a little sore when I bite down. My right molars have no pain at all. :-) I have been eating all of my food on my right side for now. I went out and ate pizza yesterday. ...

Hey Katt,

I was amazed that I would be able to eat real food and floss so soon. I was able to floss most of my teeth yesterday without the floss threader :-) I feel fortunate that I have not had much pain so far. Thanks for the complements, I actually like how my braces look too :-)

Take care,
-Dave

Hey B,

I hope that the pain goes away. My braces are self-ligating, maybe that is why the pain is not so bad so far. Well I hope you feel better soon. :-)

Take care,

Hey Katt,

Thanks for the happy brace day comment. I sure am drinking a lot of water and eating soft foods. I was actually able to eat a hot dog today on my right side. :-)

Hey everybody, Well its day 2 of my braces journey. I did brush and floss last night. :-) It took me 45 minutes to floss but I did it. :wink: I used the GUM Eez-Thru Floss Threaders and it worked well. I also used Oral-B Satin Floss and it seemed to shred a lot and kept getting stuck to the brackets...
