I heard of a teenage couple, both with braces, that were kissing and their braces got stuck on one another... :eek:

And they hold up your pants!
Seriously though, short term pain for long time gain.

I have braces too; top teeth and bottom teeth. They only hurt for a few days after they've been tightened, but it's totally worth it for the end result.

Yea. I remember when I had mine... ahhh, the days... Anyway, I wasnt able to eat anything too solid for what seemed like eternity. But like Crestfallen Star said, yea, I used to want braces too. I remember all of the cool kids back in junior high having them. It made me want them real baaaaad. Wierd, huh?

It's an urban legend...and it happened in a movie or 30.

ooo braces was a *****. i had them for 2 1/2 years. i wish you much luck! just wait til you go monthly or so to get them tightened.... thats pretty painful. i suggest you taking a couple tylonal before you go to the ortho. its worth it in the end, but it really is a pain in the ass.

why did you have to get them?

my teeth were straight, my only problem was i had a severe over bite. my bottom teeth touched the roof of my mouth. the top of my mouth would get cut and swollen at times.

o btw, have you gotten that wax stuff yet? id suggest you use it. your mouth will get cut up. i threw the wax out but that was a big mistake.

and one more thing - dont lick or feel them with your tongue. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

two more things. will the red and green side markers come off? if so, when?

sorry it took me so long to reply, but we were out of town doing real estate business. well my parents were anyways...

you know what? this is all my dad's fault. his stupid gene. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-1.gif

I soooo hated those braces, Im glad I got them off but now i have to wear a retainer for like two more years. :mad:

i always got the clear elastics on the braces. i used to do the colors but i got sick of it.

katmandoo - you have to wear the retainer and be faithful using it. my x wasnt and his teeth moved and they looked bad so basically all that money on braces was for nothing. pig josh make sure after the braces are off you wear that retainer!!
