congrats on the upcoming brace removal!

I need braces like there’s no tomorrow, but due to multiple reasons I’m leaving them hideously crooked. πŸ˜›

I recently had braces for a year and a half (my second time wearing braces — I also had them for three years in middle school). Got them off in October. I was smiling huuuuge after I got them removed Laughing

I would love to get braces, but I’m afraid I would look like a COMPLETE goober. I’m going to be 30 in 4 months. Just can’t wrap my mind around the idea of it : /  I would be way to self-conscious, plus I know it would HURT like crap. My bottom front teeth are pretty crooked, but oh well.

Will be awesome to see your pics! By The Way, I love the brown hair color too πŸ™‚ What is it with guys anyways? So opinionated about things like that… πŸ˜›

If by “as an adult, you mean 17.5+”, I got mine off when I was 19 (maybe 20? ).  It must have been 19, I was scheduled to get them off, but my boss wouldn’t let me take off, even though I’d known about the appointment before I’d even had the job. πŸ™  

I don’t really have any before/afters that I can show, even if I were willing, as I’m a closed smiler.  But I will gladly regale you with my experience.

I had to have eight teeth taken out beforehand.  They didn’t even warn me they were putting on brackets, they slapped them on when orthodontist was checking out my gumminess.  I was mad, I still had food that I needed to eat!  I had to give it all away, so sad.

The day I got them off, I bought an apple nearly 3/4 as big as my head.  It hurt eating it, and I was stuffed at half of it, but it was worth it.  I also bought some beef jerky, my mom said “if it hurts, don’t eat it!”  but I was too excited.  I finished that stick with tears in my eyes.  Worth it, 100%.

Maybe I got them off at 20, because I flipped out that fall and bought waaay too many popcorn balls.  I had to make up for lost time.  I think they were all I ate for a month.

I didn’t really wear my retainers like I should have, so I have a few gaps where my teeth were pulled, and I don’t think my fronts completely line up.

I want to join in too! I had them at just before I turned 14, and they came off 2 yrs later. 4 Healthy teeth were yanked out in the process. I had the roof of my mouth set wider, I wore neckgear at night…all worth it in the end! Pictures are: before, with weights, with retainer and finally the after πŸ™‚ Sorry some are pixelated, it was in the days before digital cameras!

Pre BracesI got braces in 9th grade and then got them off at the beginning of my senior year. I was 18 but i would got through all of it again because i love my teeth now. 

During braces but pre surgery( I had surgery to pull down teeth that were impacted into the roof of my mouth. When they put the braces on they pulled the baby teeth so i had awkward empty spot for 1 year)With braces after the teeth were pulled down

Now with them off ( this was during senior year so its like 3 years old)

got my braces on in 8th grade.  Had 4 teeth pulled  (2 sholdve stayed, they were permanent baby teeth).  Had an incisor moved 2 positions (to where it shouldve been…). Had them on all through HS.  Got them off freshman year of college.  Went to the implant specialist.  Had to put braces BACK on to move that tooth back. Had them on for 3 more years (in college!).  Proceeded to get 2 implants.  3 caps.  1 veneer. Wore a clear retainer for a year.  And finally, at the end of college, it was alllll done.  So we’re looking at braces from age 13 – 20. ugh πŸ™‚
