I got them last week at 30. I wish I had known I needed them when I was younger, like when I was 19, because I hear that bringing down an impacted canine is much more successful the younger you are, but the dentist I had as a teen never told me that I had that, or that I had so many baby teeth. OR that I could have closed the gaps caused by two molar extractions before causing upper jaw deterioration...>.>

My parents would have never been able to afford braces, so 19 would have been the time when I could have pursued it myself.

32 here, just got them.
Should have gotten them as a kid, but my mom (and dentist!) didn't think it was medically necessary.

23. Regret it though, functional change but no aesthetic change

I’m getting mine in 2 weeks and I’m 24. A lot of people have told me their only regret was waiting so long when I tell them I feel too old

32. It's been 3 years and 7 months. Hopefully my braces will be off in a month or 2.

Just turned 29 a few days ago and I’m about to take the plunge. I wish I got them sooner but I’m excited nonetheless!

I'm about to take the plunge at 50! Nervous, but also excited. I was happy to see I'm not alone here on the board as I noticed there are some others in my age group as well. :)

38! Would have loved to have gotten them earlier, especially since my angled wisdom teeth made the crowding much worse over the adult years, but c'est la vie. I'm 2 weeks in to 2-3 years... trying not to think about it. :)

37! Had them for two years as a kid, didn’t wear my retainer, and now I’ve decided to go through a whole mouth reconstruction to prep for veneers and metal braces is part of the treatment plan.

I’m currently about 6 months in to an 18 month sentence...and in lots of pain due to a big tightening/adjustment two days ago. Can’t sleep. Ouch!

I'm 46 and will be making a consultation appointment soon. I've been wanting to for a long time but had a son in braces so I needed to wait until I wasn't paying on those anymore.

I will be 33-34 when I do get them done and I wish I’d had the orthodontics put in ten years ago. Better late than never!

I had braces from 5th grade through 8th grade as a kid but as an adult I had them put on at 33 and taken off at 35.
