I had my wisdom teeth pulled in my early twenties; but I didn't need ANY extractions before the braces no.

I had all of my wisdom teeth extracted in my twenties. they were all impacted and a huge PIA.

I didn't need any additional extractions before braces though.

Good luck, and can't wait to hear your story!

thanks again everyone! You know what Faery- after all of that I opted not to even get the Essix retainer. It took me about a week before the gag reflex went away with the Hawleys, and I got used to the routine. Hang in there, it takes time but it does happen! I wear mine 24/7 for the first six mos. ...

btfly- Wow! Your post brought tears to my eyes!!!! I am so happy that you decided to get braces (and that my story helped you along with your decision!)

thanks everyone :flowerbloom:

I didn't find it to hurt at all! I had ceramic and top; and everyone kept telling me how much those hurt coming off but I didn't think it was bad?!

I was just so happy to be having them removed they could've done whatever they wanted :)
