I'll probably book an appointment with my dentist tomorrow and see if I can get these magical Invisaline you are all talking about.

What's the average time for braces? A year I suppose?

Also braces are bad to have. Not with the social aspect of having them but just having them and having metal shit cut your lips and the shit you can or cannot eat and the extra brushing you have to do and so forth. Talking wise, people won't care. A girl in my class just got them this week actually and she's in a public speaking class nonetheless. If you aren't a little bitch about them, no one will really notice them until 1) your speech is back to normal, which happens quickly, and 2) you get them off

Are your teeth pimpin' now though?

I have a fucked up jaw as well. Tmjd I think it's called.

I would imagine that depends on how long it's going to take for braces to correct your teeth alignment. It could be anywhere from 6months to a couple of years. Depends on what your dentist thinks really.

Oh yeah they're pretty sweet alignment wise. No more over bite and gaps!
Braces are well worth it and you get used to some of the annoyances like the cutting and the food you can't have. Just get that shit over with asap. Don't not do shit like I did because I was a lazy cunt as a teen.

I have a retainer now, and ever since I got my braces off, I make damn sure to wear it every time I go to bed so I don't have to have braces ever again.

Yeah my canines are higher up than the rest of my teeth so it's a bitch trying to eat most things. I'll take your advise and not be a lazy bastard Pagan!

Bro, I was in the same boat as you. I was about 19, too I think, and my teeth were F*CKED. It made me feel like shit, as I knew it was a huge turn-off for girls, but I didn't want braces either because I felt too old and I didn't want to have them for two whole years. I got Invisalign. The draw-back is that Braces also straighten your bite, but Invisalign doesn't, however Invisalign still gets your teeth looking straight and good, and you don't even have to wear them as long (It'll take about a year to finish, they'll be looking good after like 6 months, though).

I remember I saw a girl who was a friend from high school, andshe hadn't seen me since I started my Invisalign, and I was almost done with them, and the first thing she told me was that my teeth looked really good. I highly recommend you getting it.

Yeah I dunno if you can get invisaline then. You need something pulling teeth down, not just keeping them close and in line.
Yeah please dont. I had mine for about seven years. That's just downright pathetic.

Nice to hear a success story.



errr just found the uk invisalign website and:
Quote:
Only the treating dental practitioner is able to fully determine your cost, although prices for Invisalign treatment generally start at 2,500. But if your teeth only need minor corrections, prices could even start as low as 1,800.






god damn

Seriously, a year of braces isn't bad at all and you'll have lovely straight teeth afterwards which will attract far more ladies than crooked Austin Powers teeth. Also don't forget to brush thoroughly before you get them put on and whilst they're on, so you don't get staining.

On a more serious note, it's really not as bad as it seems. Believe me when I say a year in braces goes by faster than it sounds, especially since you, unlike me, won't be spending a few additional months rehabbing from jaw surgery on top of the time in braces. Plus it's really better to get it done with when you're young, as your body is quicker to heal.

Hey shitty braces are shitty braces. Many people have had them and have looked great after them. People have had worse shit put on them to help fix things. You didn't have to do headgear did you? I was supposed to but wore that shit maybe 5 times within 4 years

Although to be fair, clear retainers do look almost exactly the same

Mm. The do look exactly the same, which kinda makes me wonder if they are actually the same thing. Because I don't see how they work differently to a clear retainer.

I guess because retainers are made to fit how your teeth are now so they stay in position, and invisalign are made to align your teeth a certain way. I dunno.

Dear god no, well I hope I'll not have to anyway. I wouldn't need a stick to keep the women away with this bad boy:

If I could get them on and off within a year I'd be happy. None of this 5 years business (no offence Pagan )

I had to wear them for 6 years, I didn't get em off till I was 19. You get used to them and so does everyone else. I hated wearing them but it's worth it now to have perfectly straight teeth, so yes do it.

When I was a kid my dentist hose to not give me braced 'cause he thought that the situation would sort itself out.

I am now 21, and I will be getting braces soon, my teeth are awful, and are actually startign to make my jaw and face crooked. Braces for 2 years.

I know what you're talking about, it's embarassing as hell having them at this age, but I guess it pays off when they're off so I say it's worth it.
