When I think of braces, all I think of is food getting caught up in them and bad breath... I couldn't imagine a guy with braces getting near either of my lips...

That's what a waterpik is for.  It was my best friend while I had braces. LOL

Thanks.

He and I are very close and I can't think of anything I wouldn't discuss with him. He's easy to talk with and has a sensitive heart. I love all three of my brothers but this one has always been like the flip side of me.

I'm also close with my other brothers but I wouldn't have asked them this type of question so I guess it just depends on the relationship.

I've been putting it off for a few years now

You'll be fine and don't worry much about your love life with braces, think about how sexy that smile will be when your treatment is complete.

Be sure to wear your retainer once the braces have been removed.

If you're getting traditional braces...threader floss.  Flossing your teeth is a pain and you HAVE to do it religiously, so invest a little more money into the floss that already has the threader attached to it.  It'll save a lot of time.  The waterpik helps, but nothing beats thorough, regular ol' flossing. 

Keep an eye out for coupons on toothbrushes, pain killers, and numbing agents. LOL

You'll also want to poke around for post-adjustment foods.  You'll get tired of soup and mashed potatoes. LOL  You want anything you can just swallow.  Rice will be too painful to eat sometimes. Dead  I was biting into bananas looking like CryCryCry  You eventually get used to your mouth hurting.  Not all of the adjustments will hurt as much as others or at all. 

I got my braces off in February.  I'm quite pleased. Big smile
