Have you ever had braces?
Posted 6/18/15 , edited 6/18/15
Just curious on who has had braces, or currently have them on. Or if you don't have any, do you want braces?

I got braces when I was about... I think I just turned 17, and had them on for two years. My teeth were pretty insane. I had an extra set of canines on top of my canines and my jaw was so small, that my teeth were crowding. I had to get four pre molars and two of my wisdom teeth pulled out. I got them on so late because my mom didn't want to pay for them and our insurance didn't cover orthodontia. So she was all like "You can only get them if you are the one that is paying them" So I did, and it cost about 8 grand. It was totally worth it.

Was it worth it for you guys (if you had them)?

Do you remember to wear your retainers? The only reason why I remember because I know how bad I looked before and I don't want 8 grand that came from my pocket go to waste.

I had braces for 8 years (1st grade - 8th grade), it was totally worth it. I had 6 teeth pulled out, not including my wisdom teeth. I wear my retainers every night.

I had braces when I was about 14. It was definitely worth the 2 years of being called "train tracks" although those rubber bands were awful!

I had them, I thought I didn't need them as a kid, but I'm definitely glad I got them looking back. Because my teeth look great now and I never realized how bad they looked when I got them on in 6th grade. My mom is dentist so she was always concerned about how my teeth looked. They were terrible though when I had them, I really didn't like them, especially when the wires broke. But my teeth look good now, and so I guess it was worth it. Couldn't get me to do it again though.

Yeah I had them. They were such a pain in the ass during football. Wearing a mouthguard and braces is no Bueno

Yup, then got them out and stopped wearing the retainer in college. And now my teeth are crap again lol. Well they could be way worse.
