I hate having to go to the orthodontics! First it's the braces, then palette expander, elastics, head brace (thank god i didn't get that!), retainer, etc! It's awful. :@ What was the worst part for you or if u don't have braces what do you think would be the worst part??

I don't have braces, but I was supposed to get them in January, but I won't :D I guess it'd suck if the orthodontist was drunk and put the braces on wrong or made them way too tight.

when I was in second grade...we were playing tron light cycles at recess (don't ask) and I ran face first into a tree...took a chip out of the tree and made a mess of teeth (my best friend at the time kept the chip out of the tree as a souvenier...I wonder if he still has it)...I was rushed to the dentist and he said that the hit actually got some of my adult teeth growing...fucking painful way to get them growing...

a few months later...clowning around in class I stood up on my desk (I have no idea why)...lost my balance and did a faceplant into another desk!!!!...well, one of the adult teeth that the other faceplant got growing was now dangling by a nerve...rushed to the dentist again and this had braces installed BELOW MY GUMLINE in hopes of saving the tooth...

I had braces as a teen and it was no pain compared to that shit!

that is hilarious(sp?). when my brother was 6 he got hit in the face with the pail of water, that goes down into a well, as it was coming up. hes pretty messed up now. i feel kinda bad cuz it was my fault, but its a long story and i dont want to tell the whole thing. Anyway, my dentist says my teeth are fine. they look like these---> :D

Man Kanism you're story disturbs me. That must've sucked.
Anyways, I put other. Because out of the whole braces ordeal I hated getting mouldings the most. Molds for you're retainers and molds for the braces. I'd always gag hardcore and thought I'd spew everywhere. then the doctors would be like "Oops it didn't come out right gotta do it again..." and I'd always be thinking "GOD WHAT THE FUCK?!", I hated the molds with a passion. Also, you'd always have hidden chunks of mold stuck somewhere in you're mouth, and the flavor, ugh.

OMG...that is AWFUL! Your parents must have been impressed! :(

I was born with perfect teeth, thank God! They are white (without dyes and all that crap) and super straight. But I have a chip out of my front tooth (a small one) I get it filled, I remember when the filler fell out of the chip and I freaked. I got it bitting a tag of a piece of clothing...use scissors!

My brother, however, wasnt so lucky. He had to have braces, teeth were growing upside down, after all that his teeth were straight, but then his wisdom teeth grew in and fucked it all up. The dentist was a shit head and basically lied to my parents. So yeah, get your wisdom teeth pulled!
