  • My mom lost all her teeth in a car accident when she was 20. By 40 the bone under her gums began to recede making any dentures not fit properly and caused her a lot of pain. This issue will occur with anyone who needs to wear dentures for a long time as there is no purpose for the bone anymore it will recede. She then had to get surgery to try to build up the bone in order for her to wear dentures properly. This caused her so much pain! Braces are a freaking walk in the park compared to how much pain my mother went through due to her having to have dentures at such and early age.
    I would rather have braces as I would not want to go through all my mother went through.

  • I have dentures and they aren't all they are cracked up to be especially if your dentist was in it just to make the money and they don't fit the way they should. But I wouldn't want braces either

  • Braces- but only if I could get the invisiline type. I saw what my poor son went thru w/ reg. braces- no thank you! (although, I bet I could lose a little weight that way!- lol :p )
