Re: Feel too old for this

Don't worry about what people think or say...everyone says actually it's only you who care! I'm 53 and mine go on in 3 weeks, I am expecting some comments, but will simply say "I am doing something I should have done 40years ago! Better late than never!!".....In reality, I doubt anyone really cares,...

Re: braces or invisalign

I researched extensively and have opted for fixed braces....ceramic top and metal bottom as the ceramic ones on the bottom can break easier and I have limited time to keep going back for repairs!! I considered Invisalign, but it is not suitable for all, and I just think if there was an option to rem...

I am terrified my teeth will fall out!! My Orthodontist said I am their 15,000 and something patient and he hasn't lost any yet!!
