    yeah.
    have you had braces before (or still do)?
    (yes = have had/ or currently)

    im beginning to think it's become a phase of growing up in todays society
    like all my friends have had them
    or either have really straight teeth
    unluckily for me, im still in da process
    ive got half a year or so
    booo

    Yes I have but they are off now. The worst part is getting the spacers put in before the actual braces.

    I had braces, but they weren't so bad. Its just a phase of growing up.

    My cousin and friend both got them, none of my siblings have ever had them, nor have I thought a few people have told us we need them (We dont NEED them. On us, they'd be purely cosmetic). The only thing we get at the dentist is fillings and teeth cleanings.

    I've had mine for over two years now, and I'm probably going to get them off next year because of the fact that my molars are just coming in >.>

    I got them on the bottom part of my mouth. The top of my mouth has this appliance thingy that pushes the back molar to make room to spread the teeth out. And it only hurt when they change the wire out. Oh, and I've had mine for half a year.

    Yeah, I've still got braces...
    Not uncommon for folks in my grade to have them, though.
    I got mine in the 7th grade and should get them off pretty soon.
    My teeth have straightened up very nicely, and I'm grateful of them.
    It didn't hurt that much, getting them on.

    Can't say I've loved the experience, but I sure am glad to have them (and can't wait to get them off!) [​IMG]

    I need them. I have a gap in my two front teeth, and I'm getting them soon. How long would that take to get done? Anyone know? My teeth are perfect everywhere else, just a gap in the front two.

    Hahaha no. My teeth were really screwed up, but they did it really well so it didn't hurt like hell. I was happy [​IMG] I don't have any now, got them removed about a year ago.

    Really? Seems kinda long. Would they have to move all the teeth in my mouth?

    mmm. most likely not
    but if the gap is big enough
    then i think most of your teeth will move in order to fill up the space
    meh. dont worry.
    im only guessing
    ask them. theyre professionals...or so we think

    Canada.
    I had my braces for 1.5 years like 6 years ago. Didn't hurt much either. I just hated the first four days of when they implemented them. I couldn't chew properly.

    I had braces when I was a kid. Still have a retainer cemented to the back of my bottom teeth to keep them straight. Braces sucked but at least you have nice teeth in the end.
