It looks like I'm getting braces at 24 as my insurance runs out when I turn 25 and I really cannot afford the full price!
I've been to an orthodontic consultation and I have two more consultations next week. I will know by next Saturday which orthodontist I will choose.

Getting my moulds done this June, and guess they'll actually go on in July at the age of 28. Feel nervous about it, mostly parents reactions more than anything! But about time I learnt to smile :)

I got them at 27. My husband has really good insurance that covers me to have them. My childhood dentist told my parents I needed them when I was 7 or 8 and they didn't have the money. I'm 3 months into the process and have already noticed huge changes.
