First Cleaning with Braces

Well...I was in at 9:30 and out by 10. As I mentioned before, I left my wires on. It went really quick, although I shouldn't be surprised...they are professionals.
The dentist came in and checked for cavities - NONE! Then he did minimal scraping. He said I am doing a good job overall of brushing and flossing - even on those back teeth :) i wondered how the polishing part would go because I still don't have 100% of the feeling back in my upper lip and there are still some odd senations from time to time. It went fine though - no discomfort. I go back in September. Ortho appointment on 3/25...Stay Tuned...

Hi, Leah. I saw Dr. Fotovat for the first time today. He said I would need to have surgery for bad bite that's not correctable by orthodontics alone. I'd like to talk to you about your experiences. Please email me at hystericblue42@yahoo.com
Best,
Amy

Hey I was just reading your blog and saw that you had an expander, I was just wondering if it was simply to widen the roof of your mouth, because that's what my orthodontist told me I needed but that it may not work because I am an adult, if you could e mail me at o6thugangel9o@yahoo.com, i have some more questions and i would really appreciate it
