Sorry, I have not visited the forum for awhile, I was offline for some time, first with changing my broadband package, and then I had to buy a new PC, after my old one packed up. Nice to know my pics are still showing. I still have them hosted by Imageshack, so I must try and get my own little area ...

Oh yes, I was teased. I have BIG teeth in a small mouth, so that's why I have such crowding Ditto! I think I got off a little lightly with being teased. I was tall for my age during those growing up years 11-16, before everybody caught me up. So, maybe people thought and said things about my teeth ...

It is possible yes, braces can be a very productive and highly effective self correcting procedure, and the before and after cases are proof of this. Get pass the difficult first few weeks, and I would be very surprised if you don't come to the conclusion that it's probably one of the best things yo...

Fantastic results, Kayla! - Congrats on your new smile. I have lower and upper bonded retainers, and you almost forget you have them there. I also have nightime guards aswell, that I have religiously used since debonding. Like you said, you don't want to have to go through all this again. Your befor...

Did have removable braces when I was about 12/13, but they stayed that way - removed. :roll: Lost them under the bed, didn't like them at all. Then the years rolled by, I passed into adulthood, and didn't quite have the money behind me to go private, until I was in my mid 20's.

Well as expected, with a post like this that is 4 pages long, contributed by the well educated and opinionated folk of MMMB, there's not an awful lot to add. Just more of the same really, I for one, could never judge and form oppinons of someone who had crooked teeth. Got to say though, that since h...

Up until now whenever I have looked in the mirror I see a relatively attractive women. But one that doesn't smile. To people that don't know me that well, it might be because they think i'm moody. But to my close friends and family its because i'm ashamed of my teeth. The thing I look forward to th...

My dentist never even mentioned braces until I was in my late teens. He NEVER talked to my parents about it. I always wanted braces when I was younger, but I've always been so self-consious about my teeth that I didn't even want to talk to my parents about it. Honestly, when I finally decided to ge...

Hope your consultation goes okay. If it's something you really want to do, then I say go for it. It's only natural to have reservations, for such a huge committment, but at least you'll have the benefit of other people's experience on here, should you need it. :)

You've made really great progress in just 10 months, Jaws. Hopefully you will get your early release this Spring ;) Then your teeth will taste the freedom of the summer months. No better feeling, when your ortho tells you that the next time you see him/her, they will be taking off your braces. :)

Re: New in the UK - another one!

As others here have said you hardly ever see adults in the UK with braces I think we are slowly turning a corner in that respect, but it will take time. A collegue at work as decided to get braces, and she knew I had recently had them and the positive results they had given me. So hopefully with mo...
