I got braces (for the first time) from 16-18, and now thanks to a number of things, am here all over again in my early 30s!

Just got braces for the first time a week ago, at age 25. I'm in professional school and will have these babies on for at least 30 months, so I'll still have them when I graduate. Just call me Dr. Braceface!

Should've been done forty years ago but we were a cash-challenged family. A number of issues have come up over the decades with the underlying cause being crowding and malocclusion. So, finally pressed the button! Had Invisalign not been an option I wouldn't have gone through with it.

I should of had them when I was 14 on the NHS in England but I misplaced my referral letter and left the issue. Ended up getting private treatment and had my braces in at 21.

got my first braces at 18 and got them off at 19. turned out to be a bit of a hack job and the ortho didn’t tailor my treatment to my needs. now i’m going to a real ortho at 21 and I probably won’t get them off for another year and a half.

I think I'll probably get mine when I turn 29. It seems that I'm headed for double jaw surgery.
