For two years I went around with big clunky metal glued onto my teeth. And now, even when I got that off, I still have a retainer that I have to wear all the time for the next 6 months, and a metal wire in the back of mouth that they want me to keep there for the rest of my life!
Braces suck. And so now, I have to wonder what's the point? I think people set such strange standards and norms sometimes. Some people are born with straight teeth, some are born with crooked ones. Who cares? Of all the things to spend time and money on. All the things to go through pain and work for. Is teeth really one of them?
If nobody had to get braces, then crooked teeth would just be normal. Maybe people with straight teeth would have to get braces to make their teeth crooked so they could have normal teeth just like everyone else.
I guess that's not gonna happen. Still, now that I have my braces off, and my little metal wire in, and nice pretty teeth, I have trouble thinking that it was all worth it. In hind sight, I think I would have been much happier without all this work, and without my pretty little teeth. But hey, that's just Dustin's View.
