Re: Men with Braces

I got braces last treatment primarily for functional issues (crowding, crossbite, tmj issues, etc.), but getting straight teeth in the process was a great bonus. I had ceramic uppers and metal lowers. This round is solely for functional reasons as the aesthetic improvement will be minimal. I have a...

Re: Men with Braces

[quote=gorillatoad post_id=507016 time=1552281676 user_id=32680] I imagine the generally strong societal emphasis on appearance for adult women has a lot to do with it too. I'm a middle school teacher and I see braces pretty much across the board in the 11-15 age range regardless of gender, but when...

Re: Men with Braces

[quote=djspeece post_id=506931 time=1551442751 user_id=20342] I got braces at age 62 mainly to correct some functional issues. My two year sentence ran into three due to some stubborn gaps. I've been out of braces for about 3 years (I lose track). The presenting issue was a gap that existed because ...

Men with Braces

I am a 47 year old male with no so great teeth. But what I want to know is why not many guys that are older get braces? There are a lot of women but very few men? Is it just a guy thing? We don’t care about it as much as women?
