Adults with braces?

How many of you mommies had braces as an adult? I hate my teeth and the dentist said it's becoming more and more common for adults to wear them, but I'm not convinced, lol. I still have only ever seen ONE woman with braces.

  • I wore braces as an adult...I was in my early 20s, I had begged my parents forever to get me braces but they were never able to. So as soon as I was able to do it myself, I did. It was one of the best things I could have done cause I just hated my teeth. I would cover my mouth a lot when I talked or smiled cause I was ashamed of them. It really helped my self esteem.

  • My sister wore them in her 20's. At my Grandkids school there are at least 3 teachers now wearing them. I've seen lots of adults with them. In the last couple of years I have known several who wore 'invisalign" braces. You cannot see them.
