How long will it take to put on top braces only?

I am will be getting braces on my top teeth in 10 days. I have 4 spacers in also and was told that I will need to have molar bands placed around those crowns? Can anyone tell me about how long that will take?

Thanks for the info. I keep telling myself it will be a breeze. Of course, I said the same thing when I got my tonsils out in 2005 - and I honestly believed it (It was worse than anything I could have imagined).

You are so lucky to have already made it to your day. I get braced on 1-17-07. The closer it gets the more I wonder if I am really ready for this. I find something new to stress over everyday.

I have a deep overbite and slight overjet with minimal spacing issues. Luckily, my teeth are straight. My parents worked in the medical field and had ...
