    Braces on your teeth, I mean.

    I've had them on for over a year and I hate them. Right now, they've caused the roots of my teeth to be slanted so they have to reposition the brackets or something like that. Not fun.

    I haven't had any teeth pulled (yet), thank goodness. My friend has though and he said it hurt a lot.

    I've never had any cavities or anything except for routine check-ups other than my wisdom teeth pulled. When I got them pulled, it didn't hurt at all. They hooked me up to an IV, which knocked me out pretty quickly. When I woke up after the operation, I was pretty "happy" for a few hours.

    Even afterwards didn't hurt, just being unable to smile, laugh, eat, or suck through straws was annoying for a few days.

    I had braces when I was a teenager. Even now, 40 years later, I never show my teeth when I smile, because I was so self-conscious about the braces.

    I did, but I never wore the retainer afterwards, so my teeth have reverted back to their original state.

    No, but I should have had them. The orthodontist told me in 9th grade that I didn't really need them but that they would help, but I chickened out. I saw him again in 11th or 12th grade, and he said the same thing. I probably woul've gotten braces then, except that he said that I would have to lose one of my (lower) front teeth. That idea didn't appeal to me, so I didn't get them. My teeth, especially my lowers, are pretty messed up.

    I've worn braces for about two or three years in high school. It wasn't that bad. I've had a lot of teeth problems over the years so I guess it was just one more of that and I didn't really care all that much. I still was pretty happy when they were removed though.

    Now I think I'm supposed to have my wisdom teeth removed at some point, I'm so excited about it...

    Braces suck. I had them for 2 or 3 years. At one point in February, they asked me when my birthday was (I told them it was the end of May). They asked me if I wanted them off then. My thought was "Can I have them off now?", but I said yes. Then I broke them, which forced me to come back in May to simply repair them. I finally got them off in November. There is nothing fun about braces (I wasn't self-conscious about how I looked because its not like I was the only one who had them, but they were uncomfortable and, when I first got them and, whenever I got them tightened, my teeth hurt when I ate).

    I'm supposed to wear a retainer the rest of my life, but I decided I was done having anything to do with it. I wore my retainer on and off for about two months, then I stopped completely. I think my teeth have started to go back to how they were, but it isn't terrible (I don't think it will ever be as bad as it was). I don't care either way, since I'm done with braces (my parents might care a bit, though, since they paid for them).

    Now, how many of you did not like the idea of having braces slaped on your face?

    I know I did not like the idea ;)
