I'm getting braces!!

fit And I don't want them!!! fit





So I had my dentist appointment today and it turns out nothing is wrong with my gums or teeth. I have a baby eye-tooth that never came out, it's anchored to my jaw bone. And my permanent tooth is pissed cause it wants to move in. And it's been crowding that baby tooth. So very soon, we will be evicting the baby tooth and apparently I'll need braces for 9 months to a year to make sure the new tooth moves in all nice like and fits in well with the neighbors.

I'm gonna be a 30-year-old with braces! bawl

No worries - my friend Kathy had them just last year - it was fine! And I'm sure you'll look darling as usual! She said the biggest pain was cleaning them - food tends to stick - she boycotted popcorn for 9 months!

You're going to look very cute and you're going to look even younger than you already do.

I was thinking about getting braces. I REALLY REALLY do need them. Who knows....

I'd like to get something done to eliminate the gaps in my teeth, but the money's just not smiling on that idea as of right now.

I could just take a few quick sledgehammer blows to the face, and then I won't have any teeth at all! No worries!

You'll pull them off. You can get the little bands in pink and black. nod

They aren't fun, but you do get used to them, and they do come off before you know it.

I don't get why they can't just use a retainer, though. confuse

over here a lot of grown up folks walk around with braces. most i see
them on are women of about 30 (really).

honestly, i've never though anyone looked weird or geeky with braces.
it's easier to say "i don't want them" than it is to say, ok i will
have these braces and see to it that i keep my nice teeth.

so whenever i see a grown person with braces i just think they're at
least cool and self assured since they chose for it and decided to
go through with it.

and what's more, it really doesn't look dorky or weird. it's braces

biggrin

lord knows 75% of all people have had them at one point or another.

and like someone else said, you with your cool attitude and looks
will surely rock the hell out of those braces

Cause that other tooth is pretty much already halfway in behind the other one. pout

Why do I read that yay! as severely sarcastic? lol

Really, because you're you, it'll work. You'll look cuter in braces than anybody, ever. Even Gwen Stefani. mr.green

I don't know... hmmm I suppose I should now start thinking about this as jewelry for my teeth. I'll have to check out what's available. I think I'm off to do some braces pre-shopping!

Don't feel bad, I got mine when I was 21 years old. I had the top row done because it was crooked and I couldn't stand it anymore. Also, I had the clear braces - does your dentist offer them? They're not as obvious.
And it will go by fast.
I hope you're not a gum chewer, though - that's a definite no-no.
As far as price, ask your denrist if he can put you on a monthly payment plan - mine did.

You'll be cute in braces. biggrin

The time you'll be in the braces will go by much faster than you think. Just keep focusing on the end result -- perfect, healthy teeth!
