Hey KellyO,

Thanks for the response on my story page. I think that we have a similar situation too. I will be getting my braces at 9:30. I am really not nervous but I do expect some pain in the first few days. Well I will keep an eye on your progress too ! :-)

Thanks,

Best store for orthodontic supplies

Hey everyone, I was just wondering if people have a favorite place to go for their orthodontic supplies (such as wax, brushes). I have been to Target and they don't have much of a variety. The only wax that they had was the wax dots. I am getting my braces next week and want to know where I should s...

Does the OralB Superfloss work well with crowded teeth? I am currently using OralB Satin Floss.

Thanks,

Hey Jenny,

Thanks for the post on my braces story page. I am glad to hear that you have no pain. I hope my braces are that way. I am getting the top and bottoms on at the same time. Hopefully that won't make it more painful.

Well best of luck!,

I am currently using the Sonicare Elite 7300 and I am getting my braces on March 4th. It is working great without braces but I have read some messages on the forum that say that the Sonicare is not working so well with braces. I guess I will find out on March 4th.

David
