  • I would like to get my DD braces but I think she is too young. I'm not sure the age they can get them. I had them and they were painful. i need them again.

  • Mine are only two but when they get older if they have crooked or crowded teeth we'll do the braces route. I did and this was before a lot of the fancy shmancy virtually painless ones. It sucked. I had to wear head gear too (MONSTROUS CONTRAPTION THAT!). But I would rather suffer the discomfort to have straight me people with really crooked teeth or who are missing teeth in the front or have rotting brown teeth in their mouths are unfortunate.

  • I have a 12 year old that is going to need braces, but we've been waiting for his adult teeth to come in a little more - he's on a consult basis with the ortho right now.

  • My middle child had braces after her upper and lower jaws were cranked with a spacer.
    I know this was all done when we were stationed down in Va Beach between 2003-2006, but I can't remember exact dates.
    They did a gorgeous job on her jaws and teeth!
