I'm getting my braces off in 2 weeks, Iv had them over 3 years just to correct two teeth that looked like thangs :') as they use to stick out. The dentist said that they can't straighten up anymore due to the shape of my tooth. It's only a bit but that annoys me more knowing they can't correct... READ MORE

It's been a process. A painful process but so worth it. I love Justice Orthodontics and the team. The outcome is going to be amazing. I have never had a bad experience there. Dr. J explains everything to me and answers all of my questions. My adjustments are always quick and painless...I just... 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 just got my braces off after 11.5 months of treatment. Well worth it to correct a misaligned bite and crooked teeth. I had braces 10 years ago and failed to wear my retainers consistently. Take it from me that it is so important to wear retainers. I wore clear braces and visited the... READ MORE

I have finally got around to booking myself in to get braces. This is something I should have done as a child but my parents could not afford it.

I'm paying for my braces. My insurance covered $1,000. I gave them $1,000 when I got my braces on. I'm feeling that I don't trust my orthodontist!!! It's a long story. But the braces are on now. I'm making my payment of $150 every month so I'm stuck with her. Now I wish I'd went else were!! My... READ MORE

I have wanted Braces for awhile. Not bc I had crooked teeth really they were quite straight. But to widen my smile. They are a total pain in the ass. There is pain, uncomfortability, color change on bands, sores, cuts, food gets stuck.. BUT it has all been worth it as I see my smile getting more... READ MORE

I am finally getting braces after putting it off for so long. I just had a consultation and had my teeth xrayed and scanned yesterday. I put $1000 down and will be doing monthly payments for 20 months for about $199 a month. I need to have 4 wisdom teeth and 2 upper crowns pulled out due to... READ MORE

I refused to wear my retainer as a kid and as I got older, I disliked my teeth but really didn't care enough to get braces. In past few years, I've has so much work done on my overcrowded teeth (surgical extractions, root canals, fillings, etc), that I decided that braces would probably be worth... READ MORE

Had pretty much straight top teeth my whole life. When I got pregnant my wisdom teeth finally came in at 25 years old and it messed up my top teeth. After pain for my stepdaughter's braces I decided to get ceramic braces on my top teeth and metal on my bottom teeth. Very happy with the results... READ MORE

I believe that my orthodontist is faking crazy so that he can postpone me getting my braces off so that he can be paid before they are perfect..(i owe him 275..they will be paid off then) everything looks good to me except my right lower incisor..i feel like it should be further back..on my last...
