    Orthodontists should all be burned at the stake on a slow broil.

    I am supposed to be finished with braces when they call a meeting and decide my roots aren't exactly where they want them. 4 new molar bands, 2 new steel banded high tensile wires with wire banding, some well placed wire ties, and 24 hours later I want to claw my eyes out with a dull rake.

    I always know it will be a bad week when he tells me,"Well Jim, your not going to like me much this month". :D :D

    I'd call that the understatement of the millennia.

    atleast you have real teeth...i had 2 sets of braces to just end up gettin 9 crowns...ive had 9 teeth pulled (4 for braces, 4 wisdom teeth, 1 front tooth becase of trauma), had 4 root canals (1 tooth was only half a root canal, it was the one with too much trauma that was pulled a few weeks later) and now they are workin on gettin all my crowns done...at the rate its going ill have more fake teeth than real ones...those braces are really the least of your worries.
