Angry Braces...again?

I had braces about 10 years ago. I went to the dentist and he suggested that I wear them again! My wisdom teeth moved my teeth a little causing them to get a little "crowded". I also "swallow wrong", I push my toungue up against my teeth when I swallow instead of the roof of my mouth causing my teeth to push out a little. I don't have a purfect smile but, it's nice. At first when my dentist suggested this, I was totally offended! Then, I thought about it and maybe he is right, they are a little off. I just don't want to have to go through that akward teenage brace face, zit face kid thing when I'm in my 20's. What do you guys think????

You might want to get a second opinion from an orthodontist. Ask if you are a candidate for Invisalign.
