Another one with inwards tilted teeth here. My case has similarities to jennielee81 but my crowding is more severe. My ortho will make room for my crooked teeth by tipping my front ones outward. :)

Its possible you have a powerchain and that is what you're mistaking for ligatures. Powerchains are often used to close extraction gaps. The use of elastics is not just for those with regular brackets. They can be used on anyone. I think I will eventually get elastics even though I have self-ligatin...

Not so far - I've been with my boyfriend 2.5 years and only had the braces on since this February.

It hasn't affected our relationship in any way.

Overall, when out and about - I've not had any comments or stares or anything nasty like that.

Along with all the water tips I'll add a little extra reassurance.

You will get EXTREMELY proficient in removing the gunk from your teeth with your tongue as you get more used to the braces ;)

It may look funny, but less funny than swishing a gob full of water IMHO :D

It's a bit weird when you think you're teeth have done with the pain until the next adjustment and then BAM you wake up with them sore!

My left upper incisor is giving me the irrits lately so it must be on the move.

Do they look anything like mine?
The pics are in my story which is linked in my signature.

If so then the brand is GAC In-Ovation :D They're one of the newer self-ligating bracket systems out.

Very nice! I think you're right about braces highlighting how crooked one's teeth are. I mean, to look at your smile without braces it looks pretty good - then braces on BAM all the changes that need to be made are revealed!

You watch that wire straighten up!

Oooh the big day is coming up so soon! Best of luck with it all and don't forget to take some lip balm and mints with you to the ortho. ;) I don't know if it's just me but I'm hella paranoid about having even remotely wiffy breath when someone is staring straight into my gob!

Yay another Aussie! Its good to see more of us on here :) Thanks for asking tjstrout - the braces are not giving me any problems at all lately. My next adjustment is on May 22nd - just over a month - not June like I said in a previous post. I'm not seeing much movement lately - but Mum says she's no...
