I cannot say the "s" sound. Where is my tongue supposed to go so that I can do a proper "s"? On the roof of my mouth? on th...

Re: clear or metal?

So I've committed to metal. Next week they'll go on! I chose metal with elastics because they are the smallest of all the options and I'm going to start to sport a large overbite as a result of the braces, before surgery. The lowest profile braces (however marginal) seemed to be a good route. I migh...

Re: clear or metal?

[quote="r1r1r12000"]Full metal here, with no regrets. Nobody has mentioned my braces except for other adults in ortho. My braces have been low-hassle. If you want to minimize conversations about them, metal brackets make it obvious what's going on in your mouth.[/quote] That was one of my thoughts: ...

Re: clear or metal?

[quote="Smileop"]When I had ceramics they were pretty discreet at first as I was pretty self conscious and honestly didn’t want anyone to know but what are you gonna do.

Re: clear or metal?

Thank you Tyrantblade. I have analysed and over-analysed the pros and cons of the different kinds of braces. One of my big reasons for tending toward metal is that for the first year, before the surgery to pull my lower jaw forward, I will have a bigger and bigger overbite (or is it called overjet?)...

clear or metal?

What's your experience--do you regret your choice and why? I have my bonding appointment in 3 weeks. I'm leaning toward metal brackets top and bottom. If you got ceramic do you regret it? If you got metal, do you regret it?
