Does he have any kind of dental insurance? Mine covered some of my orthodontia. And the rest, I financed with the orthodontist. I made low monthly payments.

Aw – that’s rough. At least you have each other to lean on and help each other. Stay strong and clever and love each other a lot, and I think things will work out somehow.

Relax, It is not a life and death emergency that he get the braces now.  It almost never is with braces. Yes, his TMJ will likely improve with the braces, but even that will take time as his teeth are shifted into new positions. It will not go away just because the braces are applied.

Let it go until after the wedding. You may even get some cheques as wedding gifts that you can jointly decide to put towards the braces.

I feel his pain. I have stress-induced TMJ and its HORRIBLE. I am sure he is in constant pain and that wears a person down so badly. I really feel for him. If there is any other little corners you can cut to save up the money (which I am sure you already are) then do it. Just have as much patience with him as you can (I know I get ridiculously cranky when I’m in pain) and help with any pain reducing stratagies he has.

@SweetRose2011: I would check with your medical plan in addition to your dental. TMJ treatment is sometimes covered there because it’s considered a medical problem. It might not cover, but it won’t hurt to check.
