I got mine off about 6 months early. It means I have to wear my retainer every day as much as possible for 12 months (would have been 6 mths and then every night indefintitely) but for me it was worth it. :)

Life after braces -it's so good!

Hello! Just wanted to say quickly if anyone is having doubts about getting braces and going through the whole process, don't! I have been brace free for about 6 weeks now and I feel like having them was the best thing I ever did for myself, no regrets, I just wish I had done it years ago. I smile so...

It's done! The removal was brutal, at one point I thought my teeth were going to crack and split. Lots of horrible noises and machining.. and then it was over! My teeth are not 100% perfect, I still have a cross bite that would need surgery if I wanted it fixed (I chose not to) but I am much happier...

Hi Braceface, in both cases my sisters wore the retainers as required, they also wore braces 2-3 years compared to my 12!

Can you get permanent retainers (wire) on your top teeth?

Hi, I will be getting my braces off in the next 4-6 weeks (hoorah!). The Ortho advised I will have a permanent retainer on the bottom and a removable one on the top. So many people I know have had their teeth move significantly after braces (both my sisters have crooked teeth again after being brace...

I am 11 days off the 1 year mark and have learned a few things myself 1) braces and UV lights are scary and it is in my best interest to avoid any place with these types of lights as they make me look like an evil clown 2) Spinach is not my friend. Ever 3) If you suspect something is stuck in your t...

Hey there, the longer you put it off, the older you will be wearing braces. I wish I had mine on in my early 20s.. now I am 29 almost 30. If you are used to being self concious of bad teeth then having braces really is not much different, except you know that at the end of it your teeth will look gr...

Mine used to pop out all the time, to the point where I would go in and get it fixed and then the next day it was out again! I made the mistake of just leaving it out until my next appointment - 6-8 weeks time and this meant that I could not get my wire changed because my back molar was no longer li...

Yup! It took less than ten seconds and now it's a perfect tooth!
If I'd known it was that easy I would have got it seen to years ago!
