So, I always had been pretty proud of my teeth (I always kept them clean, and they were always straight, my ortho said I shouldn't ever need braces). Except I went in last week when I noticed one tooth starting to get forced out of place really bad.

So now it looks like I'll end up getting braces after all, except it kinda bothers me, cuz I'll be wearing them into my senior year of High School.

So I thought I'd check with what the Pit thought about them, if it's that big of a deal or not. I know I'll appreciate it when it's done, I just wish I could have had it done a little earlier than this, lol.

Good luck paying for braces while you're still in high school

Braces are awful, but worth it when you get them off. Follow your orthodontist's instructions religiously and you'll get them off a lot sooner than if you slack off. I had them on for two years, just got them off about a week ago. It's a great feeling to have them off

Believe me, I'll have him on speed dial for any ways I could possibly speed the process up.

they suck. i wasn't able to eat any hard foods for like a week because my teeth hurt pretty badly after i got them put on. after that it didn't hurt besides when they changed out and adjusted the rubber bands.

they're really inconvenient, food gets stuck in them pretty easily and if you accidentally (or probably worse, intentionally) get hit in the mouth the insides of your lips will get scraped to shit and possibly bleed. it always looked like i was puckering my lips when i had them on too.

Never had them. I recently got a deep cleaning though. Need to go again on the 1st. Those are kind of uncomfortable. Thankfully, no cavities, and only a deep cleaning on 2/4 quadrants.

I had them for a year. Honestly, worst part was getting spacers - bits of rubber between your back teeth that expand to make room for the ring that goes around them. Holy **** that hurt. But the actual braces, not so bad.
#16
Be careful, they tell everyone that they need braces and are getting rich off of people that probably don't even need them.

I stopped getting novacaine at the dentists because one day I realized she was drilling into the root, probably so i'd have to pay for a root canal eventually.

Without novacaine, now I feel when she gets close to the root and tell her. I don't trust anyone, but most of all dentists and auto mechanics.

I had braces when I was 14. I had them for about 6 months longer than was needed because the orthodontist was trying to correct a gap that in the end never closed. Sad. I didn't really find them annoying, though. Could eat whatever I wanted to as long as I kept them clean and was careful about biting hard things.

I've never had them because my teeth are perfectly straight. unfortunately, my canines look like fangs but my dentist won't fix them because she says she wishes she had my teeth

I had braces and I had this bad boy:



It's deigned to widen the gaps between your teeth to make room for them to be aligned by braces. I had pistons in my damn mouth, as well as a large metal crank you can just about see on the roof of the mouth.

I had something like this, except instead of pushing my teeth around, it pushed my lower jaw forwards. Basically, I wouldn't of had a chin if not for that thing, even though wearing it was hell.

i got them and didn't wear my retainers post-facto so i just wasted lots of my parents' money.

i wish i hadn't because it makes me feel guilty and also it'd be cool to have straight teeth i guess. tbh i find crooked lower teeth attractive, but crooked upper teeth i could take or leave. ¯\_(ツ_/¯

I want that. Not the actual metal in my mouth, but the plastic model with it in there.

My teeth aren't straight, but they're not wonky enough for me to get free braces on the NHS, so I guess I'm stuck like that. I'd rather spend 18 months with them on and have a good smile for the rest of my life, but I can't expect the parents to shell out for something that I apparently don't need.

I had them in junior high and maybe a little ways into high school. Once I got them off my teeth were perfect, and I seldomly wore my retainers. Well 10 years later my lower teeth have overcrowded and aren't perfectly straight anymore. The top teeth are still fine though.

Pisses me off like hell and I wish I could go back and make myself wear my retainers.

crooked bottom teeth are nothing compared to crooked upper teeth. or a gap.

I don't think that happened when i had braces.

Seriously though, braces are horrible. As soon as you get used to them, the dentist goes and tightens them.

That and having your family drag you out to dinner a day or two after you got them tightened is the worst.

I remember, there were several times that everyone was eating steak, and I'm sitting there without eating and barely talking.

Had them when I was in year 7 or 8 or something, so I was only like 12. Pain in the arse for the year or 2 I had them in, but it was definitely worth it in the end. A friend of mine has only just got a brace and he's 22.
The plan was to drink until the pain over.

They do suck. I had them my sophomore year of high school. Once I got them off my teeth were perfect, but then what they never told me is that after I spent a year with them on - I had to spend a year putting in a retainer. So I only kept the retainer in for a couple months.

Now 6 years later, my teeth are semi-crooked instead of just crooked.
#32
i never wore my retainers... it's been about 3 to 4 years and my teeth are still fine. but my wisdom teeth are like halfway in now and i'm hoping they don't get crooked because i don't have the retainers anymore hah. if they do it doesn't really matter, when i smile my teeth don't really show anyway. my mother might potentially kill me though.

$4000 for corrective measures on your teeth? That's absurd.
