Re: Surgical Hooks
- Mine are little T shapes that he clamped on in between the braces.
they aren't even hooks at all but I guess the band will hook on around
the top of the T shape. if that makes sense.
I have Daemon brackets though so I'm not sure if diff types of braces
require different types of hooks.

- Thanks everyone, i suspect i'll have them on as a precaution. I'm
having them put on three days before thanksgiving which is two weeks
before surgery. I guess my mouth is going to be irritated and i won't
be able to eat well for thanksgiving. great.
