This is the place to post general questions and comments about all areas of orthodontic treatment. Before you post a question, use the forum's SEARCH tool to see if your question has already been answered!

New Members: YOU MUST MAKE A POST WITHIN 24 HOURS OF REGISTERING OR YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED. In other words, don't sign up unless you plan to actively participate in the message board immediately. This is necessary to keep out spammers and lurkers with bad intentions. Of course, you can read most forums on the board without registering.

DO NOT POST FULL-FACE PHOTOS or personal contact information on this website. We have had problems with people re-posting members' photos on fetish websites. Please only post photos of your teeth, not your whole face. Keep your email and your personal information private. Thank you.

NEW MEMBERS do not have the same privileges as regular members on this message board. This is mainly to keep spammers, spam URLs and spam signatures (which usually contain spam URLs) off this board.

You are a "New Member" of this message board if you have made less than 7 posts. You are a "New Member" when your user name is the color red.

After 7 posts, your user name will turn green, which means you have become a regular "Registered User". At that point, you will have more privileges on the message board.

New Members CANNOT do the following:
-place a signature in their profile (this includes a ticker)
-place an URL (website) in their profile
-place an URL (website) in a post
-make an attachment to a post
-edit or delete their posts
-change their password
-send or read private messages

After you make 7 posts and your user name turns green (which means that you have become a "Registered User") these restrictions are lifted. However, if we find that you are spamming the board, or behaving badly, you will be banned.

People who register on this message board, but do not make a post within a couple of days, are DELETED. If your account was deleted, you can register again. But if the same person keeps registering over and over again without ever posting, that person will be banned.

I know that these rules seem strict, but they are necessary. Spammers are relentless, and if we are going to have a quality message board, we need to enforce these sort of rules to keep them out.

One more thing I want to tell new members of this message board: Please do not post full-face photos of yourself, especially if you are a woman. There are many people out there who have a braces fetish, and yes some of them lurk on this message board. Please only post photos of your teeth or mouth. And please think twice before posting the URL to a blog or website which reveals your full face or location.

Thanks for understanding.
