I can't say much about the the whole gagging issue, but I waited till my 12 year old molars grew in to finally get my braces but was then told by my ortho that this was not necessary. I'm not sure if it was just my case, but I never had anything done on my 12 year old molars, and the molar bands wer...

My ortho did not suggest surgery to me as an option to fix my overjet. I had my braces on for almost a year and have used elastics for about 5 months.

I got my top braces on towards the middle of April. Last week, one of my molar bands on the bottom cracked and since that, I noticed a gap forming between one of my front teeth and the tooth next to it. I understand that gaps sometimes form when your teeth are moving, but I find it really strange ho...
I go my top braces in April, and am due for an appointment on Sunday to get the bottom ones on. However, when I was eating before, I noticed that there was a clicking sound when I chewed on one of my molars, and later found out that the molar band broke! I don't know how this happened; I don't even ...
Here they are. Please excuse the disgusting teeth :oops: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v701/Baby_Froggy/IMG_1976.jpg From far, you can barely see the brackets :D http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v701/Baby_Froggy/IMG_1982.jpg My older sister had ceramic braces 4 years ago and these are by far le...
I just got my radiance braces in today--my ortho uses them as well. My teeth aren't too white or too yellow, and I have to say, they're practically unnoticeable :] I just got the top row in but when I talk, you can't even see them.
