I've never had braces, so I don't know firsthand and the advice might seem obvious but do everything your orthodontist tells you to do. A lot of people won't wear the rubber bands, which will just extend the time you're going to have to have braces.

Enjoy your future perfect teeth and smile; not many are as fortunate as you are ~~

That quality and price has gone up, but most insurance policies offer payment plans for braces. iirc that's roughly how much my brother's cost when he got his.

We both had braces for at least 4 years, too.

Best get your braces while you're still young and your teeth are still pliable. Braces aren't that bad. Usually the ache of getting them tightened every couple months only lasts for a few hours and the only really annoying part about having them are the rubber bands (if you get to use them) that are used to align your jaws. I think the only time my teeth really hurt from the braces was when they were tightened to the point of closing the four gaps where my bicuspids were removed.

They're worth it, though. Before braces I refused to smile with my teeth because they were so crowded and twisted -- I always had to smile an awkward thin smile in most of my older pictures. I looked brooding more than I looked happy. <_>

And I agree with following your ortho's orders to the dot. Neglecting to wear rubber bands is a big no-no and can prolong having your braces.

I think that could be the top price for braces. Mine were barely 1/4 of that >_> The dentists were starting their carrer, I guess, so the patients paid only $25ish for each maintenance, which happened once a month, or more if something had to be replaced.
I used those things for 2 years.
AND it's pretty much the basic, take care with what you eat and how you eat it so you don't have to go back to the dentist to replace something, and do a better job brushing/flossing so you don't spend much on whitening your teeth later and neither have food stuck in the braces.

Oh wow thanks guys my orthodontist told me I have to wear them for 18-20months. My front teeths aren't straight so that's why I need them. Again thank you guys for sharing your experience.
