Re: Those in late 30s or 40s - do you regret getting braces?

I had my braces on when I was 56. I have no regrets getting them at my age. Have to say tho..I was hoping to have them off before I turned 58. My birthday is next week..and I have them them probably until November. I am ok tho..very pleased with the results!

Re: Let the Journey Begin....

Where has the time gone?! I have had my braces for a year already! Last appt I had some brackets rearranged. With the changes I had to go to a lighter wire. I go next week for next adjustment.
Appt before last, I was told I am more then half way.
Hope all is well Kids041.

Re: What do you feel....

4th adjustment today. I have new wires on top and bottom. Bottom is 17 /25 rectangle, ( I think ) and top is 18 round. I am feeling very sore teeth. But at the same time I am excited things are progressing now!

Re: Adjustments and Wire strengths

Hi everyone! Has been a while since I have been on here. I am in my 4th month. Have all my original wires. I do wonder when they will be changed. My teeth are still moving, so I know they are still working. I definitely see improvement, so I am very pleased so far!

Re: My Orthodontist ROCKS!!

I did call Friday as soon as the wire tie came out. Being the day after Thanksgiving..I was not too surprised no one was in the office. I went in today and had it taken care of. All is well.

Re: How aware are you of your braces?

I think the only time I don't think about it...is when I am sleeping!! Other than that....I am always aware. 3 1/2 months already.
