Re: Poll: At What Age Did You Get Your Braces?

I’m 19, and I got my braces yesterday. I had to get four teeth pulled last week in order for there to be enough room because of the crowding. Although I’m 19 and in college, I looked about 13-14 before, so now I look even younger. No one believes me when I tell them I’m turning 20 soon lol 21 and m...

Re: Braces giving me new wrinkles

I think it's just temporary. like if I sleep on my right side my right nasolabial line become a little bit more prominent. Over time it might cause permanent lines, idk tho!

Re: Day 2: Are We There Yet?

Re: Things learned by me in 9 months of braces
