I had (and still have) full braces (top and down), I had four elastics and combination headgear (without security device) with rather strong pull (300 gr and 280 gr)
This was the best time in my life!!!

My ideal would be upper biteplate and lower fixed braces with a combination headgear, then upper and lower fixed braces, still with the headgear and then retainers afterwards. I also have minor maloclusions, which this would fix :)

I’ve had almost every type of appliance available stuffed in my mouth at some stage or another. 

At the end of the day, nothing beats the look – and feel –of a classic old-fashioned interlandi headgear.  I’ve had the cervical – which is good, but the big one works best. 
Lately I have a top Hawley retainer and an interlandi, which is wonderful for adventures, and wonderful for taking out and hiding in the drawer when the fun is over.

I wear full tops and bottoms with elastics. But I would also love to wear a Face Mask. Blue chin cup and forehead pad made of plastic with hella metal. Plus its amazing talking in it. the chin cup moves up and down with your chin...   ;D
