    back to school soon with braces...feeling very self-concsious

    Your Question:
    The other day i had braces put on for the second time, and the first time I had braces they were on for five years I've had them off for one year and now they've been put back on. They were put back on because I need to have jaw suregery on my top and bottom jaw because I have sever tmk and only two of my teeth touch when I bite. I have ceramic braces on the top and metal in-ovation brackets on the bottom. I am going to have to wear these braces for a year and then next summer i will have my surgery and then have to wear the braces about another 6 months. I'm going to be a sophmore in hgih school this year and I hate that I have braces because they make me look very young and I'm extremely self-conscious about them. So I was wondering if there was any way to make the braces less visible on the bottom like something I could cover them with daily because they are glaring metal?

    try talking to your dentist about that or try looking online. Can you smile? If you don't want the braces to be seen, you should try smiling. I hope everything works out for you.
