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 got braces in Frankfurt Germany, I went to three dentists for consultations, two said I needed extractions, with top and bottom, and tried to blow up my problem as though it would be really expensive and complicated the last dentist said no extractions and only top braces, since my bottom...

I am limited on words but let me tell you that getting braces was the BEST thing EVER that i could do for myself..... My My teeth slanted inward...I literally hated my smile because it was "gummy" and although straight you could not really see my teeth. 2-1/2 months later when they were finally... READ MORE

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 have been wanting braces for a long time and have finally decided to go through with it. So I've decided to go with ceramic braces. I have some crowding in my 4 upper and lower teeth in the front and I also have a cross bite. I'm going to be going to my local Orthodontics School for... READ MORE

My experience at Upper Eastside Orthodontists has been superb from the outset. I prefer early morning appointments, and UEO staff always accommodates me in that regard, with no hassle. This morning, I found a parking place right outside the door to UEO, but I had to be out of the space by 8:00am... 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

Very bad experience with Dr. Newhart and his workers. They are money hungry unprofessional, rude, dishonest, and will yell at you and treat you like a child if there is a disagreement. Every time I was there it just always felt like they were money hungry and just out to optimize money intake.... READ MORE

I decided to have orthodontic work and the orthodontist extracted 4 teeth 2 on top and 2 on the bottom. I started to suffer Sleep apnea symptoms and now have a documented sleep disorder. I had a cross-bite and should have been referred to an oral surgeon first. Adult palate expander do work!!... READ MORE

I wanted to get my bottom teeth straightened because as I have gotten older my once perfect teeth started to shift, almost as if they were turning towards each other. I have always had very tight teeth and when I got my wisdom teeth, they came in on their sides, it really crowded my lower teeth... READ MORE

I had a gap in my front teeth that bothered me my WHOLE life!. After Dr Akhavan treated my son, i was so happy with his smile, and her office that I asked her about my gap. My general dentist had quoted me about $4000 for invisalign but she said all I needed was a retainer! the treatment was... 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! They hurt way lest than my metal ones, they don't really stain at all unless you don't brush you're teeth, & they look great in the mouth. I'm... READ MORE

I am 20 years old and I never really seriously thought about getting braces before. Simply because my flaws were really minor.. I have slight over crowding on my bottom row of teeth, which was caused by my wisdom teeth growing in (I have since removed all four of them), and I also have a very... READ MORE

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. Hope you enjoy :D First of all, when I was a kid, I drank lots and lots of milk (like... 3 cups a day). My... READ MORE
