How do you confuse me with colon D?


Don't look a gift horse in the mouth, especially if that horse has braces... because they aren't pretty.

Personally I think unless you got some seriously f'd up crooked British teeth...braces a re a giant waste of time, money and anguish.

As another poster mentioned, unless you plan on using a retainer for the rest of your damn life, you're teeth WILL shift back. I had a "permanent" brace on my front bottom teeth that came off about ten years later and those teeth have shifted.

People are ridiculously obsessed with their fake neon white, perfectly straight teeth :rolleyes: Straight up vanity/first world problems.

Braces are not 'just' for crooked teeth or cosmetic reasons. If someone's bite is off ie: their teeth don't meet properly, it can cause major issues down the road.

As I said:

"...unless you have some seriously f'd up crooked British teeth..."

Implying that if you have really, REALLY bad teeth and or a "medical" reason for it, sure. That's not the case with most people.

I use braces...

try this...

1) get used, it hurts and it hurts even more when the dentist do the ajusment...

2) donīt eat very solid food (hard to smash with your teeth), it can damage your braces and then it will hurt even more...

3) if it hurts very much, bite some meat or some rubber, or do something that will hurt more than the braces...

4) if blood comes out donīt worry. itīs just your mouth telling how much they hate you for put the braces :)

5) start a nice relashionship with your dentist like "I hate you" instead of "good morning", or "you are my mechanic, go for the iron now" or even the classic "less talking more metal" or be sarcastic "of course itīs hurting, but Iīm soo tired to say that to you and you donīt do anything about it. goctha!"

6) if you work for the military or get you medical certificate there just be honest with them:

"ok. Iīm using this S$%Ļ&! because I donīt have choice, last year you guys from the military told me to put the braces or you will not give my certificate this year. soo Iīm here with this thing, itīs your fault anyway"

7) some girls like guys with braces...

My wife and I never had braces as kids and we decided against them for our daughter. When she was 14 we gave it serious consideration, but her teeth were straight enough . She is now 18 and her teeth look fine.

If your teeth are crooked , i would do it.

C'mon man don't be a sissy. The tenderness and sensitivity goes away after a few days. Suck it up. It's worth it in the end when you get rid of your buck teeth.

Funny how none of the kids in my family got them but in the next generation it was quite the opposite.

Too much of a sales pitch by the dentist and nervous mothers me thinks.
