I've never had or needed braces I'm really scared though because I feel like one day I'll wake up and my teeth will be all ****ed up and I'll have to get braces when I'm 40 or something

I don't see how it would be damaging. I got called C-dog for a number of years despite not being a dog. I turned out alright.

unless you really need it for medical reasons and you'll be good about putting in those stupid retainers every night after they're off, i wouldn't bother.

i lost my retainers after not having worn them for a few months and had to get new impressions with my teeth not quite perfectly aligned. along with even more not wearing of the new ones and eventually throwing them away, i've got a bit of a snaggletooth on the front bottom teeth.

i still blame part of it on the shoddy porcelain cap that's next to it. ****ing weirdo dentist that did that number used to have newspaper clippings all over the walls of his office about how he was a crazy person.

I don't know if its been mentioned yet, but theres braces called "Incognito" (or "Encognito" idr) & they go on the backside of your teeth. I had them, and I was told by my orthodontist that they work better than traditional braces. If you can't get invisalign then try to see if your ortho offers incognito. Plus, no one can see em unless you show em.

Are they like the permanent bar you get after braces behind your bottom teeth?

No, I think thats called a permanent retainer. Incognito braces are just braces on the backside of your teeth. They come off like normal braces do, you may still have to wear rubber bands like normal braces depending on your teeth.

They look like this http://www.smilesbyaos.com/images/i...ont-photo-1.jpg

I'm in the same boat as you, except I'm 16 rather than 19. But I would still feel stupid with braces even at 16 because most people I know that needed braces got them in year 8. I only see very few people older than me still with braces.

Well, in my high school enough kids had braces that I didn't really catch any flack for having them for the first three years of highschool. I would try to talk and eat in a way that didn't show my braces though, and a lot of my friends would actually occasionally be surprised when I reminded them I had braces

it doesn't look great, but that's not really a big deal. The big deal is how uncomfortable and annoying it feels. Getting food stuck, spending half hour a day flossing, the pain of having them tightened, and just the general feeling of braces...

Unless your teeth are really giving you a hard time, I'd say it's not worth it. It's pretty lame.

I'm 18 and my parents are looking at getting me into braces.... again.

I had them on before when I was about 10. Stayed on me wee little teeth for 3 years. They I got the retainer to make sure they don't move after the braces were off. Well the retainer broke and all the super glue in the world wasn't going to bring them back, so my bottom teeth are all caving in on each other while my top teeth stick out of my mouth.

Braces would make them look better sure, but do I really want to deal with the hassle of going in every month plus taking a hit in the bank account? I'll take my awkward teeth, thanks.



tl;dr no adult braces.
