Re: Braces at 53

I lived in New Zealand for 5 years and they hardly ever do adult orthodontics! I am lucky to have dental insurance to help out as well. I could never do it without their payout. :) In 36 hours my journey will begin! Nervous and excited all at once. Good Luck.....I think I need to stop reading about...

Re: Braces at 53

Mumma, I am not in my fifties, but I will in my forties when I am done with my treatment. For me, the shame I have for my teeth far outweighs the response I will get from my colleagues. I have been to many consultations throughout the years and never did it. I always take care if my family! Now it ...

I have been told I will have some black triangles due to my crowding after treatment, but my Orthodontist has said that my regular dentist can build the tooth up to eliminate these with normal regular filling material to match the tooth. I am going to have my teeth lightened as well afterwards as th...

Re: New to braces at 25...

I am twice your age plus a bit extra and also getting braces around the same time as you! I would not describe my feeling as excited!! More terrified! But. I put the decision off 2 years ago and am now back re visiting it, so I will just get on and have it done. I have crowding and do need spacers s...
