Re: 57 and braces again

Update: 17 months have really flown by. My original sentence was 20 to 24 months and I will be exactly in that time frame. I am wearing elastics now canine to canine. Next appointment will be x-rays and then final tweaks. I get nervous about the braces coming off because I don't want them shifting a...

I found that very funny. I started keeping Windex and a roll of paper towels on the bathroom counter!

Re: What I'm looking forward to after my braces come off

My orthodontist has started talking about the "D" word...debonding. Yay. The biggest thing I am looking forward to sinking my teeth into a big hero sandwich. I love, love sandwiches but they have been on hold. My favorite is an Itailian hoagie. I bought one once and cut it into bite size pieces with...

Re: Has anybody switched from Invisalign to Braces?

Listen to your orthodontist! Invisalign can only move the teeth so much. It is not for everyone.
If you go with your plan you will probably be spending twice as much in money AND time!
Having braces on is no big deal. I have the clear braces and they are great. More discreet!
Good luck!

Re: Should I at 58

I am thrilled to have braces on and have no regrets? I love, love the way my teeth are looking.

I am now 59 and the braces will be coming off in a few months.

I say go for it! You will be very happy with the results!

Note to self: Do not eat any more cream spinach in restaurants until the braces come off!

Re: Dental cleanings right before braces?

I scheduled a dental cleaning a few days before my braces went on. I did not have extractions.

I wanted clean teeth to start with and also to address any issues before brace day just in case.

I think this has been the only time I have gone 6 months to the day for cleanings.

Re: 54, Getting braces in January

Good luck! I am pleased with my choice of ceramic braces. Not invisible but less visible.
How long does your orthodontist say you will be in braces.

Re: Bracing myself at 53!

Your teeth look fantastic! I think they look great. Congratulations! My midline will be off when I am done. When I first had my consultation,I told my orthodontist what my concerns were with my teeth and that I really didn't care around the midline. I didn't want to be in braces any longer than I ha...
