You're not going to want to hear this but you have to get braces again. Yeah, bummer. Same thing happened to me. I thought once you had braces that was it. Forever. Not so. Many people find that their teeth begin to move 20, 30 + years after having their braces off. I'm 37 and had my braces off when I was around 12 or so. My teeth started moving a lot about two years ago. My dentist told me that lots of people need (what she called) "a second round of ortho." Ideally its best to have your teeth corrected before they get TOO much out of whack again. I just don't have the dental insurance for that. Braces nowadays come in clear and even removable form so you won't look like you did when you first had braces. Do a Google search on "adult braces" and you'll find plenty of articles! ~ T

Not at all! I was extremely worried about getting braces. I was afraid that it would hurt. It doesn't hurt at all! Don't worry about getting braces, you'll have a beautiful smile afterward! :)(P.S.

Maybe some people have different types of braces, but I assure you there is nothing to be worried about!)
