    i have a few questions about them... my dentist said i need braces.. and well, whenever i think about needing them, i feel like i need them because i'll feel it in my mouth... but when i ignore it i just feel like my mouth and teeth are intact...

    i put a rubber band in between my teeth sometimes and it soothes me because i feel fine but...

    what would happen if i didnt get braces? would my condition worsen? have you ever ignored your dentist's intentions? because.. i dont know if he is just being a money sucker or just too conservative.. but would my teeth become deformed or something?

    arent there other methods of fixing yor teeth!? i dont wanna get braces...
     
  2. are you paying?

    if not... get them.

    antithesis Hello

    I had braces for 3 1/2 years and now I have a permanent retainer on the back of them. And even though it sucked, I am glad that I did. I feel a lot more comfortable now that I no longer have psychotic teeth, but I don't know how bad your teeth are so it's really just up to you.

    Perhaps if your mom can't afford it, your mom & dad & other relatives could share the cost. From what I know, as people age, their teeth (even healthy teeth) become more & more crooked. However, people who have had braces at a young age retain comparatively even, straight teeth as they age. It's probably better to get braces now rather than a decade or two from now. By the way, I'm sure that your date for the prom will find you attractive, and he will consider himself thrilled to be taking you to the prom, even though you might have braces. Good luck, Nisha.
