Adult braces, anyone? - Page 2

post #16 of 22
I have the behind the back braces on the top and regular braces on the bottom currently. No one knows I have braces unless I tell them. The first 2 weeks were hell in terms of eating and talking. After that, I had no lisp and no problems what so ever. So if you are worried about a lisp, this may be a great option.

Braces 101 is a series of pages containing tips to help you survive the experience. Some of the information on these pages is from my own personal experience, and some is gathered from various dental sources on the Web. Remember, when in doubt, ask you own doctor.

I can still feel the scars left by the braces on the inside of my mouth 20+ years ago.

I'm 30 and have braces in now. I have plain old metal braces upper and lower. I had these paid for in the UK because my overjet was a bad case, but if I had paid for them myself I would have gone for the clear coloured ones. I find myself very self conscious about smiling with them in, but that is probably down to my age as much as anything.

The only reason I don't like the idea of the behind the teeth ones is that I have read they can cause sores on the tongue. The sores on the side of the mouth can be sore enough. Anyway, I'm hoping these will be out in a few months. Well worth doing I think.

Yes - case by case basis. In my case they wanted to remove my wisdom teeth (3 had not come in) before installing the braces for fear that if the wisdom teeth moved they would ruin the changes from the braces. I know others who have had one or more teeth removed to aid in spreading out crowded teeth.
