Just got my brackets on on Monday, next appointment this Monday, getting 4 pre molars removed Tuesday, so far I've paid around 355, the estimate was 2k, don't know how much more it will be with the tooth extractions yet
>>9693439 go to a fucking good ortho. braces change your whole face depending on how severe your teeth were before. a good ortho will do their absolute best to not remove any teeth because that's the biggest factor in face change...
>>9697292 Yeah man. I know a girl that had a 10/10 cute face. Only problem is she had crooked teeth, so she saw only one orthodontist and went with it cause she thought every orthodontist would tell her the same thing. To be fair, I saw 10 orthodontists in my area and 9 of them told me the exact same thing (that I needed jaw surgery or tooth extractions to get rid of my deep bite). She ended up having to get 2 teeth extracted and now her cheek bones and chin are all sorts of fucked up.
Moral of the story: see all of the orthodontists in your area before choosing something you're paying a shit load for. And do some fucking research.
>>9698903 I got braces when I was twelve and only had to wear them for six months but had to stay "in treatment" (i.e. keep paying and getting check-ups every six weeks) till I turned 18 because you keep growing and your teeth could still go back to their old position (at least that's what my ortho said). So it's actually a better idea to get them as an adult, in my opinion.
>>9698868 You know, it comes and goes. Was afraid of getting braces my whole life. Teeth were too close together, fucked up positions, ugly smile and so on. Then, one day I got one of my teeth extracted after a whole lot of thinking. After that, I knew there is no turning back, extracted the other tooth needed, and got my braces. I got ceramic braces, so its not so nticable when I speak. I can't smile thought, because of the missing teeth spaces, who are not yet closed up. On the other hand, was ashamed to smile before, so not a big difference. Started to see major improvement allready month in, now I just need to wait till everything straightens out. Braces are worth it, trust me.
had braces in middle school because my parents could afford and health insurance. teeth were pretty straight to begin with. mom told me to not lick my gums as a kid after teeth fell out and second set grew in as that would cause them to grow in crooked. listened to her and seemed to work. not sure if true. had a very slight overbite like most people do, nothing that anyone woild notice but me.
braces fixed the overbite. always get compliments by dentists on havi.g a nice straight pair of teeth. unfortunately there was a three year period of meth and heroin abuse where i didnt give a fuck about personal hygiene and never brushes my teeth. got a few cavaties and teeth went from white to yellow. brush daily now but they stay yellow. i also drank a lot of soda duri.g this time...
>>9693439 had braces as teen but stopped wearing the put-in-yourself thing after the maintreatment was done. now my incisors are kinda crooked again with a small gap in the upper ones. dont know if my wisdom teeth had a negative impact as well. want to get braces or such again now.
second: my upper incisors got broken off 9 years ago. one only the lower corner, the oner one half of it. got a composite repair but the material is slgihtly worn off now. question: should i get a new composite, bridge or veneer?
i also consider a bleaching but not sure about the negative effects it may could have aaaand with my half non-natty tooth not sure if its the best idea. getting veeners for my whole smile is a little bit too much though, my teeth are not bad enaug for such a treatment imo.
Stop being such a bunch of /fa/ggots and just rock your teeth the way they are.
Unless you have an extra tooth growing in somewhere or your teeth are so fucked up you can't chew right, who gives a shit how they look? Keep them actually healthy (brushing, flossing, etc) and stop worrying about aesthetics (muh straight, muh alignment, muh white).
I have health issues that make everything on my body brittle and unable to absorb nutrients, or anything of the sort. I've started to notice that my teeth are breaking and cracking and spreading apart and shit. If I get braces or something to fix them will the braces break my teeth more? Tfw the last tooth that broke was because of a gummy vitamin.
>>9699483 Your lower jaw is way too small for your teeth to fit in Top row too, but not that bad
>>9699003 Germany, when I was young they told me it's not bad enough yet for it to get paid by the insurance and once they realized that it's fucked (16yrs+) they told me that I have to wait until im 18 until growing stops
Mine did too, now,,, but could've had it as a child too :/ What did you get btw? Braces? I'm getting surgery+maxillary expansion+braces (Gaumennahterweriterung, Operation am oberen Kiefer + ne feste Spange für 1-2 Jahre)
theres a guy on /diy/ whos fixing his teeth himself, scanned em, worked out all the changes and is 3d printing himself retainers to wear at night to slowly bring them in line. Says it will be much cheaper than going to a dentist..
>>9698970 Same here, I didn't get them until I was 16 because I still had a lot of movement. Got them off a month after grad (which felt like the end of the world having them on for grad at the time) but my teeth are pretty damn perfect
>Had braces from 13-16 >Gorgeous, perfect teeth >lower jaw grows a bit >teeth not set properly now, headaches and neck pain all the time >get braces again at 20 >get them off at 22 >couldn't be fully corrected as expected >Crossbite is prominent and obvious to those who look >wake up everyday pissed as hell about this >Pain still there >wasted all that time and money only to fuck myself worse than I was fucked before
