Braces at 53

Hi I am 53 and about to embark on fixed braces. I have had the consultation and have the spacers in 3 weeks and braces in 4. I am really anxious to be embarking on this at my age, but have hated my teeth all my adult life. I had a consultation 2 years ago but didn't follow it up and if I had they wo...
