Worth It

I had a gap between my lower front teeth that really showed when I talked. I also had written a cookbook of tender foods for braces-wearers and was on TV a lot, so I figured I needed to do something. My teeth moderately ached the first few days after each adjustment, but I used salt-water... READ MORE

I had many consultations over the years, and finally at 41 decided to bite the bullet and get braces. I wanted to turn on tooth at the top that was slightly misaligned, therefore I got them for the top only and a retainer at the botton. Procedure was fairly easy, no pain, just slight discomfort...

As you can tell from my picture below I needed braces badly, my parents did not do this for me as a child and I had to do it for myself when I turned 25. The pros: teeth that did not look terrible. I can now finally smile in public without being embarrassed. Cons: getting cut on the inside of my... READ MORE

I've had crooked teeth my entire teenage life but never wanted braces. I decided I'll just get them, but I'll get Ceramic. It was the decision ever!

I am 20 years old and I never really seriously thought about getting braces before. Simply because my flaws were really minor..

I was looking at something else but decided to look into braces and found that there weren't a lot of comments on it, so I decided to write my story about my experience and my opinions.

Here I am age 47 with my braces off for six months now, and my mouth still feels unnatural. I just didn't know what I was in for with constant difficulties from the braces and retainer. My teeth were crooked but solid prior to braces. Now my teeth are straight but weaker than heck. Probably... READ MORE

Correction of the results of traditional orthodontics. He does functional orthodontics which means he takes the entire face into account not just the teeth. He will reverse the retraction that was done after extraction of teeth. Extraction of teeth for braces causes underdevelopment of the... READ MORE

I recently got 6 month braces from Glenwood Smiles in Raleigh. I am an adult and this is my first time with braces. I didn't have them as a teen.
