Great news- you had them on for ages! And thought having mine on for 1 and a half years was bad. So, pleased with the resukts?

Jen, is it cold out there or are you just pleased to see me?

Lucky I get mine off in January though

Last week I got them tightened for the first time in three months and it was sooooooo painful, the next morning I had ice cream in a blender for breakfast cuz I couldn't eat

i have the metal one for the bottom teeth, and im getting a clear one for the top teeth.

only problem with my smile now is that my teeth are really small...so, the way they had to do it leaves a little gap on the side of my mouth so all the upper/lower teeth fit together right. next, i have to get those teeth fixed so the gap goes away

I had to wear braces for two and half years! I hated them but the result was great. I had to wear retainers at night to keep them in position.

Ugh...I have braces and I doubt I will get them off anytime soon. I think I have 1 more year to go because I have to wear them for 2 years.

Go Jennifer!!
Good Luck in 2003!!

I wore braces for half a year! It was pretty fast and they didn't really bother me, except for the fact that they always fell out
