I wanted braces when I was in high school. I did not like my over bite I have. I have a friend regina. She really needed braces in her mouth. Her teeth hand over her bottom lip. Now I think I would not want them. People say they hurt when you have to adjust them......Have a great day!

That is all you want from them as well. I am hoping for the best with your teeth. Take care of them and yourself.

Hi. Linda4ualways. Yes. I have worn braces. I wore them for three years. I was so happy when I got them off. Now I will have to wear them again too. I could not stand wearing the metal brackets. I made sure that I changed my bracket color to clear. I did not want to have braces the color or metal on my mouth.

I am sure the smile is better tahn before and it is all worth it. I think my friend would need to wear them longer than three years.

I would think you don't need them either. If I did I would have got them when I was much younger.

hi Linda4ualways! I wear braces for 3 years to correct my bite. Yes you are correct it is really painful. I can only eat soft foods, I cannot chew nor bite because it really hurt when food touches my teeth. But the result is worth sacrificing for.You can have your dentist check if you need braces or not.
