I had some orthodontic work as a kid, and do I ever wish I hadn't been so stubborn and followed through with the treatment. Or I wish I would have gotten this over and done with in my early twenties, even if I couldn't afford it. I'm 27 now and I've been in braces for about 7 months.

I turned 24 yrs old few month ago. I am gonna get braced next month! :D Can't wait for the journey to begin! I'm going for traditional ceramics with colored bands.

I had always wanted to close my gap in my 2 front teeth and my bugs teeth since i was 13. I was so afraid to pluck out 4 tooth just to get braces so I didn't do it. But now that i had 4 wisdom tooth out and 2 upper teeth, it was nothing... I really wished I did it back then. But I am sure I won't regret and it's not too late! :D

I'm 27 now....if all goes according to plan I should be getting them off RIGHT before turning 30. Can't wait to start my 30's with a beautiful smile!!

To all of those who had braces as a teen but didn't follow through...will you get your kids braces? Or is it better to wait?

Got them on at 23. Going to have underbite surgery in the near future.
I was really self-conscious about them at first, and felt like I was too old for braces (sometimes I still do) cos I don't know many other people in my age group with braces. But now I'm getting more comfortable with them, pretty chuffed with how straight they're becoming.

i had a brace when i was about 13-ish? (it was a fairly long time ago and i don't exactly remember...)
for about a year, younger brother broke brace (accidentally.....) when taken out to eat.

i don't remember the how's and why's but i wasn't taken back to the dentist for a new brace.
by the time i thought about having it done myself in my late teens, it was quite a long treatment time and hideously expensive.

now aged 46 i've been tempted by the short treatment time and reasonable costs of having a cfast brace.
i still can't quite believe after all these years i'll hopefully get teeth straight enough to smile with confidence,
and not cover my mouth or try to avoid smiling altogether.

I'm 28 and in the process of getting consultations now. I'm sure I'll get them by the time I turn 29 in a couple months.
