Welcome aboard. I'm 19 as well, but I'm about to get mine off next week. I have the Damon's and I have no complaints. I'm going to be so happy once I get these shackles off my teeth though, haha.

I'm only wearing elastics at night....

At my last appointment, my ortho told me that they are going to deband me at my next appointment, here in about 3 weeks. The past 6 months I have been wearing different elastic configurations 24 hours a day. Now I am only wearing 2 elastics, both in a triangle shape attached to my top canine and bot...

Hello there, I seem to be in the same boat as you. I'm scheduled to get mine off in a month, yet I have 1 tooth that is still slightly crooked. Yet, despite seeing this slightly crooked tooth, he told me that they will take off the braces on my next appointment. I don't know if the crooked tooth is ...

I'm a sophomore in college at the age of 19, and have had braces since June of last year. I have had significant improvement, and am already almost done. I will have my braces off before the end of this year. I have the Damon metal braces on top and bottom...they are great!

However, I find that when I talk alot, laugh, yawn, even when I smile widely... they tend to snap off, sometimes flying acros...

"uneven" teeth...will the ortho fix this?

What I mean by this is that some of my teeth are more "jagged" than others. I just want all of my teeth to be even.. well with the exception of my canines, it's expected that they are a bit sharper than the rest. But will my ortho sand my teeth down till they are smooth and even or what? I assume th...
