I wore braces for 3.5 years, I had modern braces. But I also had to wear a headgear and tongue crib. I would have preferred full bands.

I would want all the metal I could get! Full bands, expander, tongue crib, combination headgear. All that would feel great and attract a lot of attention.

Lucky you! that must have been a fun experience.  Did you have some photos up a while ago, under the same name? I remember seeing some on image shack or something.  They were awesome!

napacaster. That sounds perfect to me. Full bands and bulky appliances would be a dream.

I have had both. Modern is more comfortable but the look of the old is more interesting.

Modern for me (but still complex!)

Brackets (but the thicker ones), a facebow with modern cervical and possible high pull straps. Maybe a tongue crib, a lip bumper and some other small appliances.

Prefer the modern look. i like the elegance of the non-bulky braces, has some attractiveness to it.
