Dr. Bowmn is clearly a brilliant and innovative orthodontist. He is very skilled and has pioneered the use of many of the appliances that he uses, including mini-screws, which he utilized on me, rather painfully. I was motivated to get braces due to a sever overbite, which led to physical... READ MORE

I had braces when I was 8-12 to correct seriously crooked teeth from thumb-sucking, but was told jaw surgery would be required to fix my open bite. Over the years, I just never got around to it. Once my youngest was out of braces, I had a conversation with her orthodontist and he persuaded me to... READ MORE

First, I really spent $7,500, the first $2,500 going to a dentist and an awful week of Invisalign, the rest going to a highly rated orthodontist for 10 months in braces and retainers at the end if treatment (those cost extra with Invisalgn!). Learn a lesson from me, folks. Before you pay for... READ MORE

I had braces before and I think the work is undone since there is a gap in between my upper teeth which is visible enough. I wore my braces religiously for the past 4 years and the gap is still there. I feel so frustrated and did a dental bridge a year ago since the dentist said my teeth are... READ MORE

I was like I got braces when all my baby teeth had fallen out. I was like 12 at that time. I had them on for a little less than 2 years. I had a monthly revision in which they would make them tighter. After each revision there was very little pain for the first day or two. The first 3 days after... READ MORE

I had slightly crooked teeth as a kid. However, my jaw was fine, and it was more of a cosmetic issue than anything. Just because every single person from my junior high got braces, I went along with the crowd and my parents paid $3000 for braces. The orthodontist insisted on pulling out three of... READ MORE

My teeth are too far apart and my bite was off. My friends said it was painful or they didn't really like their doctor, but it hasn't been bad for me (the pain part), just a little sore for a day after my appointment and I like my doctor. He always asks about my school and soccer and how... READ MORE

Constant headaches, sometimes migraines. As an adult, the possibility of wearing braces wasn't a pleasant idea, but I needed them to correct a malalignment in my jaw that caused my constant headaches. READ MORE

Gaps in teeth, big one at the bottom and even spaces at the top. I want to smile with confidence. I think the price is high, but who knows, I'm ready to better myself. READ MORE

I am 35 years old. I always wanted to have Braces but lacked the courage to make the commitment. Like most people my age you think after a certain age "Whats the point?" Although I am only 2 months into this experience I can already see and feel my teeth moving. I was very... READ MORE

I was a 59 year old female when I got my braces. I did it because I was grinding my teeth away. Braces moved my teeth apart so that this doesn't happen anymore. My experience with the braces on way mixed. There were lots of times when my mouth got cut up from wires and thing. Dining was... READ MORE

After my children had their teeth straightened out by Dr. Povolny and his expert staff, I decided it was time for me to finally have braces as an adult for health reasons - to straighten out a bad cross bite and crooked teeth. My children had a very positive experience with outstanding... READ MORE

As an adult I needed braces to correct some back shifting molars. Luckily my front teeth looked just fine, and I didn't need them for cosmetic reasons. Unfortunately, the braces still had to be on my front teeth where people could see them. Yes, I know, life isn't fair. It's not... READ MORE

I had braces as a kid, from the time I was 13 to 15, and it wasn't a big deal at all, I barely remember having them. After about six years, I started slacking off on wearing my retainer, which made it fit less and less well, until I stopped wearing it altogether. I should have trekked back... READ MORE

I am excited..I get my braces on this coming Wed March 30, 2011. I currently hate my teeth, i am missing the ones that grow next to the front teeth between the front/canines, and i look like i grew vampire teeth. My mouth is small and the teeth are angled in. My bottom is crowded and a bit... READ MORE

I never thought my teeth were horrible, but I did have a slight overjet and crowding. I wasn't insecure about them, but they certainly could have been improved upon. Then one day I found out that one of my baby teeth (there was no adult replacement) had a huge cavity and would need an... READ MORE

I'm 56 and my bottom teeth were very crooked and I'm cavity prone. The stinging comment is listening to the technicians tell me this was just a three year cosmetic exercise. I feel injured and conned. The problem with aging with bad teeth is the back teeth are worn down and all... READ MORE

Hi I am considering Nova Southeastern University Dental School for braces. They have a very straightforward process for getting them. First of all, there is a free screening where they decide whether you qualify for braces in their school. If they do decide you qualify, you have to return for a... READ MORE

Pro: teeth are straight con: they're small. she didn't care about the end result, just my money. my gums are puffy like no other. my teeth had gaps, and that's it. they were relatively straight, and my gums were NORMAL. this woman rushes through my monthly checkups and... READ MORE

Close-by, fair prices. I originally had braces and moved in the middle of the session. My dentist was so close, I had to go to him! I quickly started to dread my visits to his office. Rafael and several other dental assistants often caused me great deals of pain in my mouth, and were always... READ MORE
