  • I don't want to get my wisdom teeth pulled out. I just want braces on my teeth and no one want to do it at all...I need some suggests about this.

  • You can't just get them on they have to be adjusted, tightened, and checked every week then every two weeks etc... for 2-3 years depending on your teeth. A ortho dentist will not work on already installed braces.

  • If you get them in Mexico, who's going to do your "upkeep"? There are regular appointments after getting them, not just put em on and take em off a couple years later.

  • ost people i know who have had braces have not had teeth pulled. i think they only do it when needed. so if you need that it will happen regardless. y dentist did not pull y teeth.

  • Braces don't necessarily mean teeth need to be pulled, it depends on the situation in your mouth.
