    Nothing worse than a block of cheese stuck in your braces

    I got braces in 5th grade. Just depends on how many permanent teeth you have lost and how bad situation is. Mine was pretty bad. Even had a bar on the roof of my mouth to stretch the palate.

    Got my braces at age 10.

    Interesting that Peter said he MIGHT have to get braces. If he’s going to see an orthodontist, that means he IS getting them. No orthodontist is going to say, “nah, he doesn’t need them”.

    I needed braces and my parents would not pay for them either my sister or me.Company medical or dental insurance then would not cover braces. Now on me when I got a full time job I waited until probation over with then I decided to get orthodontist work done and I paid for it myself in my early 20. Just before I got married I finished treatment and what I owed. My sister never did go.
    The orthodontic treatment also required the bar to push roof of my mouth very painful and pinched/broke a bloodvessel I bled.

    Yes, they will. They go to check out the situation.

    I guess I said that based on my personal experience.
    I had braces for a total of 10 years. I had an overbite, but really not that bad. My orthodontist was a crook who milked us, first my father, then me later when I took over the payments. He never gave us an end date. He just kept me coming back, and since I didn’t know any better, I kept making the appointments. Finally at age 20, I went in and said, “I’m done, take them out”, which he did. He could have done that years earlier.

    Patient: Doctor, I have yellow teeth, what do I do?
    Dentist: Wear a brown tie…

    orthodontists always try and make your mouth ‘better’…….which i find extremely dumb. my motto is ’don’t fix what ain’t broke’

    My parents didn’t take me to the dentist. My father pulled a loose tooth with pliers. I’m not making that up. I’ve been paying for that kind of stuff for the last 40 years. My teeth were a mess.

    I sucked my thumb until I went to first grade. I quit when the kids at school made fun of me. then I needed braces. My family couldn’t afford braces. My family said that when I join the Air Force, they’ll give me braces, free. Since it was cosmetic, they wouldn’t do it. I couldn’t stand to lie and say my teeth hurt and I need braces.

    After I paid for my own braces, I still needed to have an operation to lengthen my jaw (horrible overbite). After they broke my jaw for me, and wired my mouth shut for 6 1/2 weeks, all the guys at work kept on the the tired old joke,
    “I’d have been willing to break your jaw for nothing!” all the while showing me a fist.

    And I didn’t join the Air Force to get braces! It was so they would teach me how to fix aircraft while I learned on my own time to fly them.
