    dumb meme that's more trouble than it's worth, good luck adhering to it 100%

    I just opted for braces behind the teeth for a grand more than the ones that go in front, can't be seen in 99.9% of situations and made my teeth instantly look better

      is that because you have to take them out to eat or drink (other than water)? metal braces sound even worse since they're almost impossible to clean fully and if you eat something sticky you may as well have a nice day.

      Does it cost more? How get it?
      I wanna fix my teeth, but they're not THAT fricked up. I feel like braces would look uglier on me as an adult than slightly fricked teeth, but If I could get behind the teeth I would.

        yeah, it does cost more. A few hundreds to maybe a thousand

        >was considering Invisalign but went braces to save several hundreds

      ... what? Just wear them and take them out to eat.

      If you can't adhere to that, you have bigger problems than your dysgenic teeth.

          Mine was $3200 after insurance, I've seen up to 6k after insurance. Definitely changes on a case-by-case basis, and how good your insurance is

          [...]
          did they have to pull any teeth? what kind of issue did you have originally and how well did it fix it? how much pain/soreness and did it prevent you from eating real food instead of soup'n'mash?

          This will 100% be on the opinion of your dentist. I've had two places say I would need one pre-molar removed on each side to make room because my mouth was too crowded, and 3 others say "wtf no?" so I went with one of the "no" places

            thanks. i've google binged and it seems tooth removal is old fashioned and being phased out, it causes serious issues. now they either do palatial expansion (either with gear or with the trays themselves) or tooth slimming, which is meh but still better than extraction.

    I had invisalign and it sucked keeping up with them all the time. And they failed me - literally couldn't move my teeth. Resorted to real braces and it was done in a couple of months.

    Nobody that matters think braces look bad, no matter your age.

    I'm about to put set 9 of 14 in on Monday. Initially went in for braces but the work I needed was so minor it didn't justify them. It's not hard at all to stick to. $6k all in, new sets are uncomfortable for all of 1 day once you're used to having them in. If you're thinking about getting them, just do it.

        Didn't need to get any teeth pulled. I got it because I had a pretty severe crossbite in addition to some misaligned teeth. It fixed the crossbite and my teeth are about as straight as they can get. The first few days sucked and then I had the occasional aligner that would cause some soreness. Once or twice I would avoid stuff like apples for the first day or two, but I had very little pain over the entire treatment.

        My insurance covered most of my Invisalign so I paid $1300 out of pocket.

    Braces ruin facial structure

      apparently removing teeth for braces is the problem, it creates that sunken flat mouth shape. is that what you mean? i don't see how correcting wonky teeth would hurt facial shape.

    It's just a more practical approach to braces in most cases since minor misalignments can be corrected without the need for the complicated high maintence headgear. Which makes it affordable and accessible to more people and good alignment itself can prevent a lot of tooth decay.

    You get used to them. I don't need to set a 2hr timer anymore for when I take them off to eat. Just remember to brush them and your teeth and keep them on for 22hrs a day. They hurt everytime you switch to a new tray but eventually the pain goes away after you've worn them. However, the orthodontist does have to shave in-between your teeth for a better fit. And if you get freaked out to the point of having a panic attack when your teeth wiggle then don't do it because they will. It is normal though and they hunker back down when you're done with the process. It seems like regular braces have more maintenance and if you keep your eyes off them you'll regret it. Other than the teeth being shaved down in the middle I'd say invisalign are better.

      well frick. like, loose wiggle, like when you lost your baby teeth level? loose teeth would make me pray to mary. do they ever just fall out, or get sucked out when you remove the tray? i tried a bite guard which is basically molded plastic just like these presumably are, removing it had suction issues that were concerning. do these things ever just rip someone's teeth out?

        They don't suction so hard that you'll rip a tooth out. Sometimes your teeth just get a little loose from the constant movement and pressure. It's perfectly fine as long as you don't freak out.

        on the one hand yeah it's disconcerting but on the other if i don't get the invisalign my teeth are already shifting and they're shifting into british genes (not british btw). they're so crowded it's exerting pressure, moving them, and actually mildly uncomfortable 24/7. idk about you but I don't have a choice. i'll just practice zen meditation or something.
