What did you get them for anyway? Judging by the pictures I don't see why you need them.

Braces have always looked awful on people. And it seems like all the kids in the West are wearing them.

I've had braces for two and a half years, almost three years. I got them out when I was thirteen :]
You're the really young member, right? You should be VERY glad that you got them now, and not later. It will make your (actual) teenage years so much better :]

Haha. I never have to get them. I have an overbite, but it doesn't cause any problems, so I decided I'd pass on spending all the money for them.

I hardly ever show my teeth when talking, not really even when smiling, so I had braces for 18 months, and hardly anybody at my school knew. I had people walking up to me a week before I got them off and going 'wtf, since when did u have braces?'.

So just never smile and you will be fine.

Bleh, I had to wait 3 years to get braces. My parents could've splashed out 2000ish (eek!) to get them done privately, but thankfully, we waited and had them done via NHS. Free.

But yeah, once they're on, they are a bitch. They ache, rub at yer gums, etc. I've had mine on just over a year, and get them off 15th May. Wayhey xD They've done the job though. My teeth were pretty higgldy piggldy before, but now... well, they're straight. So I guess for the hideous amount of pain they cause me, it'll be worth it. ^__^

I disagree, sometimes braces can really look sexy on girls. But of course, that's just my personal opinion.

I knew/know a 28 year old gay Austrian who had to wear braces last year. That must've sucked.

I can't top the gay Austrian part of that, but there was a 30 year old supervisor at work that had braces.

Just be glad you have them now. You're 11, right? Your teeth will take far less time to get right now, compared to even a few years from now. They'll be out by the time you're 13/14, and when that happens, you'll be glad you've had them. I know it sucks now and I do sympathise. But trust me, those couple of years will just fly by.

Ugh, that reminds me of that link I saw on some porn site. "Teens with cum on their braces!" or something like that. And there was a picture of a girl smiling with... well, cum on her braces. God, there's so much bad porn out there... Honestly, 98% of all the porn I see is just gross and weird. I don't care if you can shove potatoes up your ass!

But enough about that. I don't want to scare the children. Um... yes, braces. I've had mine for about 18 months now and will soon get them taken off. I honestly don't see what everyone's complaining about. I don't think they hurt or anything like that. They did a bit in the beginning, but now I barely feel them.

man, i should've worn braces when i was your age. but i didn't, and i had to pay a shitload of money - and go through some pain - to get my teeth real nice and even with no gaps. at the age of 20. gurrr.

i'm sure it sucks right now, but it'll be so worth it when you take them off.

I've never had braces - and I definitely disagree with Tijs. I've never found them attractive.

I have braces, though you'll never know it, 'cuz I never smile.

I got braces about a year and a half ago, because of my pen chewing habits. But, I still chew pens. Hell, I took out 2 brackets (the part that they glue to your teeth) a week ago.

I need to wear braces, my teeth on the bottom looks like crap but nobody can see them so I don't want to have something in my mouth for a year.

And T-6005 is right about girls with braces but you are too young Human, it doesn't look bad.

I got braces for the second time 2 weeks ago. I can barely notice them now. It still freaks me out when I look in the mirror and happen to be showing my teeth.
