Okay, so I got my braces put on, on the 4th of July, although I'm only about two months into braces I LOVE my results ! there's so much more to do to them but so far so good, before I had them on I had to get two teeth removed due to crowding... But heck I'd do anything for strait teeth, here... READ MORE

I'm getting traditional braces next month, just in time for high school. I was wondering how long it would take for my gaps to be close. If you look closely two teeth are pointing straight forward, and one of my front teeth is kind of bent at an angle. I just wanna know approximately how long it... READ MORE

I want to caution anyone who is offered the latest "Six Month Smiles" procedure, which is supposed to straighten crooked teeth in a matter of six months, DON'T DO IT! I went to a dental practitioner (who probably did a three day course) and now my teeth are more messed up than... READ MORE

Hi everyone, This will be my second attempt to do a review on Six Month Smiles! I typed one up earlier and it was perfectly detailed but then my laptop decided to restart and update on it's own! Urghhhh.. Lol But anyways, it all started off just me wanting veneers and it was pricey! $1000... 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

I got braces yesterday and I can barley close my mouth, even without braces I had trouble closing my mouth too. I am 18 and very insecure about my teeth, now that I have braces I cannot wait to finally be able to properly close my mouth, I know it'll take 2 years to get them straight, I just... READ MORE

The main problem I was facing was that my upper canines were very high.I was very shy to smile.I wor braces for 20 months.The braces were annoying for the first 2 weeks,and you need to take some pain killer everytime the orthodontist tighten them. I hate their silver color. I asked for... READ MORE

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

How long till my tooth twist back into place && for my other tooth to come in front ? && do I really need 4 teeth pulled out ? As I don't want my face shape to change or mouth to be sunken in .. I would really appreciate your opinions . I am 18 got my braces on 1-23-13 so... 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 got braces last June and got them off this month. I only had my top teeth fixed. I was recommended the jaw Surgery but didnt get it and just got the top braces. I had both of my canine teeth were baby teeth until I was 23. They got stuck in front of my adult ones and just never came out.... READ MORE

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`m a 21 year old college student who was paying for braces and then begging to be financially unable to pay to get them off and I`m really scared of what can happen and no one wants to work with me , I can make payments but everyone wants the money up front . I don't know what Im going to... 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

I just had braces put on today! Or should I say they only put 6 of the little blocks on my teeth!! I was told I have to come back next available appointment so the procedure can be finish!! Is that too long? I'm embarrassed because my teeth aren't finished... Before I call the dental... READ MORE

I come from a big family of 6 kids, so getting braces as a child was unrealistic. We were poor. I am now working two jobs and am finally able to afford them myself. I went to the orthodontist today for a consultation and Invisalign is out of the question, because I need expanders. So I set up an... READ MORE

I've been to other orthodontist offices and seen several doctors, weren't too convinced about any of them. But then I found upper east side orthodontist offices and it is by far the best I have been to. Receptionist are very nice and welcoming. also this office is very flexible with their... READ MORE

I had braces at 15 because of my gaps on top and bottom. when I got them off i would wear my retianer at night only and my teeth eventually shifted back to normal:( luckily the bottom teeths gaps didn't open again. I went to get a few consults on what to do and after considering all my... READ MORE

My case was very complicated. I had lost a baby tooth at 30 and still had the adult tooth up in my pallet. I needed surgery before the brace and again later because I had every complication you can imagine. But the Dr was determined to have me happy with the results. I ended up in regular... READ MORE
