    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Speaking of teeth, do you all think 25 is too old to get braces?

    No way. I often think about getting braces or Invisilign (didn't wear retainer in early teens).

    If you plan on living for a few more years, why not? It is fairly common to see 20-30 y/o's with the modern adult braces.

    I'm almost certainly going to start looking into Invisalign within the next year or so, and I'm in my mid-30s. Teeth move as we get older, and the little bit of movement I've experienced has exacerbated some crowding I've had since my adult teeth all came in. The crowding was never enough to bother me much in the past, so I didn't do anything about it, but in the last year or so it has gotten to be uncomfortable. Plus, the way one of my front teeth has moved is really unsightly to me. I don't want it to get worse, and I figure I've got at least a few decades left on this body, so I may just get everything straightened up.

    That said, I might run the other way if they tell me I need anything other than Invisalign.

    whenever I see adults with very visible braces, my mind always goes to "I bet you they assume I'm judging them", which is in and of itself a judgement.

    Invisalign has come down in price right?

    Probably the way to go if you are willing to trade more money and alignment time for not having to go to a job interview 12 months from now wearing braces.

    Invisalign is an overpriced product that underperforms. Traditional style braces are still by far the most effective way to a straight smile.

    My genetics (largely from the British Isles) damned me to horrible teeth. To add insult to injury, I had significant damage done due to too much fluoride as a child. Fixed the over-floridation issue with root canals and crowns (it cost as much as the queen's jewels).

    I could really careless about fixing the rest. If someone thinks that makes such a big difference, then to hell with them.

    Also, Jewel was hotter before she fixed her teeth.

    If we're talking about bangable women with messed-up teeth, look no further than Kirsten Dunst.

    Yeah, according to my research, it's roughly similar to the cost of traditional braces. Plus, my dental insurance picks up a substantial part of the cost, even for adults.


    I'm not looking for perfection, and I'm not thrilled about the idea of having visible braces for a long time. I'm also super prone to canker sores, and my understanding is that braces can make that pure hell.


    I honestly never cared before - I like a little bit of imperfection - but I'm mostly considering it because of the comfort issue. I'm not thrilled about the way one of my teeth has moved, but I'd be a lot less bothered if I knew it wouldn't move again and my teeth were more comfortable. I'm hopeful there might be another way to address it, but I'm not optimistic.

    Mr. G does your company's sick days cover braces?
