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?

:D grats!!!! I hated braces!....... did you get the clear retainer or the old metal and plastic one?
Sep 22nd, 2002, 01:17 PM
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 :fiery:

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.

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 :o
