I like the modern brackets, personally. To me, I want the mouthful of metal and plastic to be a surprise. I speak and there’s a lisp, but it’s not immediately clear why.

Modem look, but with wire ligatures, upper and lower expanders, elastics and a lip bumper.  And headgear.

Maybe old school orthodontic treatment. I say this because I know my mouth would be much more full of fixed orthodontia/metal- like expanders (top and bottom) with bite blocks molars so mouth wont shut all the way. Then a large bright colored or metal lipbumper on bottom and of course a MASSIVE headgear to top it all off and with the choice of oldschool orthodontia I feel like I will have a much better chance of having that headgear wired in!

I would absolutely love to endure this ortho gear walking through the doors of highschool soohmore or junior year ; )

For a week? Old school bands, thick wires, elastics and headgear.

For actual treatment, more modern metal brackets although still with the elastics.

For just the week, it does seem a bit of a shame to let the chance of old school treatment pass-by. Especially considering I'd want others to be experiencing it for years!

For only a week I would also take the old-fashioned ones, just to get the experience.
For a treatment I would prefer the modern ones, but not the slim self-ligating brackets  ;D

Is miss the time when everything was done with removable appliances and headgear. Nowadays it's almost only fixed braces which I don't like.

I'd love a combination of the sleek and colorful modern styles with the bulky metal retro styles.
