How old will you be on the day your braces come off?

Just a quick survery. How old will you be once the metal is outta your mouth? An estimation will do.

I'll be getting them out before my 19th birthday. So 18 for me, another year to go. Feels like a long while, but i know it is all worth it, especialy after my jaw surgery.

31 or 32. Almost certainly 32 for the lowers, but if a miracle happens, 31 for the uppers. It would be a nice birthday present ;)

To be one, to be united is a great thing. But to respect the right to be different is maybe even greater.
