I totally agree with that. time flies. take a look at the braces stories to see how fast changes are happening. and think that all the time you are thinking about getting braces, you would have nice straight braced teeth.
I almost took the decision one and a half year ago but I didn't do anything because I am afraid to do it, I am afraid I am too old, now I would be in the end of the journey and I would have straight teeth.

It is never late to gain confidence :heart:

Hi everyone. I am in my 40s and 8 months into my six month smiles experience. Librarylady - my teeth look worse to some degree now, gaps, wonky (in different places) but I guess its part of the process. My dentist told me that teeth move in a zig zag position, not smoothly as an arch (if this makes sense!) so we will see gaps etc. All I wish for is the end of my braces journey and straight teeth. It has to be worth it! And to be honest when I look at my original photos, they have progressed loads. Currently on my third wire, one to go! Good luck everyone, keep smiling :D

I went through a similar experience -- teeth looking SO much worse before they started to look better. All I know is that, for me, the journey was SO worth it. I can not imagine going through life with teeth that looked like mine did before I got my brackets. Hang in there. It will all be worth it at the end. Guarantee it!
