Re: I think I'm calling it quits....

Re: Feel too old for this

I got my braces on when I was 52 and still in them now. I will be 54 in a couple of months but don't get them off until January, which will be 30 months total. Mine was for overbite/overjet and a crossbite issue. My teeth were for the most part straight. I was biting into my gums though so it had t...

Re: Just got clear braces on top. Should I do metal or clear on bottom?

Hey spree43....
I was told the ceramic on the bottom are a little less robust and prone to breaking more easily, so I am going for ceramic top and metal bottom as I can't be doing with too many trips back and fore to replace broken brackets!
I guess it depends how careful you are too!!

Re: Can't make a decision on braces anymore

All I can say is I am 53.....just about to have braces in 2 weeks. I did not have the opportunity as a teenager. I watched my children have braces as I didn't want them to have teeth like mine! Mine aren't terrible!! But they are far from straight. I had a consult 2 years ago having thought about it...

Re: wire poking

So this morning on my way to work, I stopped by the ortho office. I found a wire poking out on the lower left, just enough to annoy. Last night I tried bending it away from my cheek so it does not bother me all the time, but still wanted to get it clipped. Nice and quiet on Good Friday morning so I...
