I finished my invisible braces adventure this week and thought I would write a review about my experience. I kept meaning to write this from the start and update as I went along but I just never got round to it! Anyway I will try and include everything from the beginning! Initial... READ MORE

Hello, everyone :) Here is my journey (back) into the orthodontic treatment world. I got Invisalign as an early teen when it was still relatively new in Australia. However, despite my self control, I wasn't very compliant and ended up stopping the treatment halfway through. No more about... READ MORE

This has been a long time coming. I am 30 years old and have made the decision to start correcting my teeth. I have crowding and a crossbite of one upper lateral incisor. I searched for the right doctor for several months and finally settled on the right one. I considered invisalign, but... READ MORE

When I was younger (age 9 through 14) I had tons of orthodontia in my overcrowded mouth. Headgear, something on the lower teeth called a "lip bumper", one molar removed from each quadrant to reduce overcrowding, and full braces. And then, of course, from 14 on I was supposed to wear retainers.... READ MORE

Hi I'm Davina/28 Im getting braces tomorrow with the clear bracket. I have crowding issues and an awful bite. Planning on getting double jaw surgery next year. The orthodontist said I have to wear them for a year then have the surgery then wear them 6 month post surgery. I'm really nervous... READ MORE

I'm finally getting braces after many years of being self conscious of my teeth, and having jaw pain. I've had severe crowding in my bottom teeth because of my wisdom teeth, which I finally had completely removed December of 2014, so now my bottom teeth(and top) are all kinds of crazy looking.... READ MORE

I looked into veneers when I lived in NY (but too scared of them dropping off at inopportune moments), then Invisalign (But I don't have the discipline to keep them in 22 hours a day for 18 months). Finally tried another Ortho who suggested I could fix what I was looking for in 2-3 months with... READ MORE

It's been nearly one year into my orthodontic treatment and I have a lot tell, so I will be doing several updates in the next few days rather than telling everything in the same post. But let me begin with telling something about myself and my starting situation. I had been self-conscious about... READ MORE

I had a 5 mm overjet and a tooth on top that stuck out from the rest. Also my lower teeth were slightly crowded, although they didn't really bother me. I just didn't feel I loved my smile like I once did so I took the plunge. I'm currently 16 months into my treatment and my orthodontist says I'm... READ MORE

So I've had my braces for 2 months almost and can deffenetly say I don't regret it minor discomfort other then the first week of having them put on which still wasn't as bad researching before getting them was a bad idea since I have anxiety I spent weeks stressing about getting them and...

I am a 35 year old woman who had braces in high school then Invisalign as an adult to fix the teeth that moved back after not wearing a retainer for many years. I wore Invisalign for 2 years and 2 months. I "completed" my treatment in January but my two problem teeth are still in similar... READ MORE

My teeth were not noticeably messed up. Everyone asked why I was even getting braces. My bottom teeth were the problem as they were "tipping" inward due to lack of space. I also had one on the bottom front that was getting crowded out. So I was told I would end up losing many teeth if I did... READ MORE

I am 27 years old currently. I have spent most of my adult life not completely happy with my teeth. Back in 2010 I had my wisdom teeth removed and that helped even out some of the crowding. And whitening helped too. But recently, I've gotten really tired of only being able to smile on one side... READ MORE

I have had my braces on for over 10 months now, the approximate time quoted was 8 months so I'm feelin disheartened at the moment as I hoped to be brace free for Christmas! I have found the procedure relatively pain free, just a little uncomfertable. . I'm due to visit my dentist tomorrow so I... READ MORE

I am 2 months in and seeing progress I am in pain but every time I go back to get adjustment it hurts less. I am already so happy I went through with it. My teeth are already noticeably straighter and less obvious. The clear braces do stain so be aware of what you are eating or drinking . I... READ MORE

I was born with alot of diastemas. Our family was big (5 kids) and poor. We barely went to the dentist. I expressed desire to get braces as a young teen but alas it was purely cosmetic so my parents didn't let me. Burn! So, I lived my youth and into adulthood hating my gaps when apparently... READ MORE

Finally decided on getting braces! I thought I might be too old at 23 years :/ I didn't want to be an adult going into an office full of just little kids but was completely surprised on my first consultation. They made me feel comfortable and very welcomed! I just can't believe I waited this... READ MORE

I decided when I was 22 to go ahead with metal braces. I had what you would call a party mouth and I never smiled with my teeth. I've had crooked teeth all my life and my parents couldn't afford to do it for me. My dentist said he would have it done in a year and a half but it's taking about a... READ MORE
