I prefer fixed braces, because you can take it out, so you have to play a real game. My treatment with fixed braces went very fast. After that i got a retainer, wich I diden't wear very often. So my treatment with retainer went twice as much as the rest.

Fixed, because you have to deal with them everyday. You can't remove braces to eat or brush your teeth.

You can have girls with fixed braces top and bottom plus removable devices, like lip bumpers and biteplates, so you can have the best of both worlds.  :lol:

Actually,

I like a couple of different things... Neither of which have their own picture forum on here...

I like fixed braces - Particularly when the molar bands are showing. Those seem to be the only place they use bands anymore, and even some don't have those. But some have 1, 2, or sometimes even 3 bands per quadrant.

That was when I first discovered that I liked braces. There was a girl in line in front of me on the first day of the eighth grade. She was shouting across the room at one of her friends in another line. She didn't have her brackets on yet, but the bands were on and I saw them. I wanted to ask her to open her mouth and stare at them... but... you know... THAT would NOT be acceptable.

It is difficult to find clear hi-res shots of people with their mouth open showing the molar bands.   :cry:

The other thing I like to see is the lower permanant retainer on the back of the bottom front teeth. There are a LOT of them out there. I even had the privelage of dating a girl who had one.

It is hard to find good quality pics of those as well.  :roll:

Fixed braces are nice as well... but at this point, I have seen, and have a collection of thousands of good pics.  I have thought about opening a webshots album for a while now, but first, I would want to go through them and crop them and eliminate the lo-res shots.

It seems that I tend to look at things that society doen't pay any attention to... elevator shafts, Bowling alley pin spotting machnes, and braces. I could care less about the inside of the elevator car, the pin machine from the bowlers area and on some level, brackets on the 6 front teeth. It seems to be the inner workings of these things that draws my attention.

Not that I am "TURNED ON" by bowling alley machines or elevator shafts... In much the same fashion as I am not aroused by braces on young girls. The older ones though... Those are what I enjoy looking at..

Sorry... off on a tangent here. This is actually the first time I have written about my "likes".

Om the German board, a linkwas posted to a document from an orthodontist. It reads:

"Wir wünschen uns mit Ihnen, zu einem guten Ergebnis kommen zu können. Dazu benötigen wir Ihr Verständnis als auch zuverlässige Mitarbeit. Nur so können wir vermeiden, das Headgear im Extremfall so befestigen zu müssen, daß der Patient es selber nicht entfernen kann."

With my relatively bad German knowledge, I believe this translates to:

"We want to help you to success. Therefore we need your understanding and cooperation. Only in this way can we avoid in having to fix the headgear extreme cases so the patient can't remove it."

(See http://anonym.to/?http://www.orthodont-toll.de/headgear.pdf)

Haven't seen anything about this anywhere else, and I believe it is mainly a threat directed towards disobedient patiens (who are plenty, not least when it comes to headgear). I mean, fixing the HG seriously inflicts with the rest of the patient's life with respect to eating, drinking, doing sports etc., and I do not believe othodontists are willing to do that.

Perhaps it was different earlier when braces were not as developed as today. Perhaps some orthodontists even bond them for a couple of days to get the patient to wear them in public. But I can't imagine it would be more.

Definitely shiny metal fixed braces! I really like them when a person in braces has had them for a little while and their teeth are improving. They tend to smile a lot more and not seem as self-conscious. Their metallic smile and elastics looks terrific!

Fixed metal is good. Extra added attractions like hooks, springs, powerchains, elastics are better. Regardless, what's most interesting are how they effect the wearer in smiling, taking, etc. Some people seem to be more effected than others, or at least more conscious of them.

On me - I like my removable retainer.  As someone else said, the feeling of plastic. 

On the ladies, I like fixed.  Nothing like a non-removable silver smile, being stuck and having to live with it.

Both instances, however, are vastly improved with the addition of a headgear - preferably a "Real" one, not some diminutive neck-strap that can be huidden under a ponytail.

I prefer removables because I love the lisp you have, while wearing them. And of course headgear.

Fixed Rapid Pallet Expander on top and removable retainer on bottom with Combination headgear. Biteplate attached to face bow. All of this would make for a wonderful lisp  ::)

Definitely fixed braces. I love the idea of not being able to take them off. Add in some sort of appliance attached to them that gives me a lisp, and some headgear.

I like especially loose braces (eg retainers, bionators, activators, etc.). But I also like many other types of braces such as fixed braces, headgear, Facemask etc. Especially with women I see love-less braces. The loose clasps I find simply the best.

As I have only had fixed braces and elastics/headgear, I suppose from lack of experience with any other type of braces I like the fixed ones.

Four years later I have another comment - removable braces on anyone are just ugly to me. Usually they're full of drool and it's just so unappealing.

I agree with above poster -- can't beat the look of a dark colored powerchain contrasting with white teeth!  Really looks good towards the end of treatment when teeth are straight.

I like bulky and functional appliances with lots of extras functionality
I’m currently into frankels and activators since they are combined upper and lower in 1
Thus her activator has cool wires on each anterior tooth as well
Lots of expansion screws added also
I like active plates for upper and lower that are connected with herbst, I would add a sever tongue crib for full effect

Public Gear wear is a beautiful site. When I am in public strapped into gear I love know people are thinking "wow that's a heavy Orthodontic application and how embarrassing that must be". I thrive on that especially when I lisp heavily ????

Fixed metal braces. Love the Straight Edge or Tip Edge bracket systems.

Are there any appliances or anything else that you would like to see get installed with those braces? Maybe some elastics with a bulky metal herbst, possibly a removable lip bumper on top with bite blocks on bottome molars or how about a massive combination headgear wired in or heavy duty facemask w/heavy forve and 20hrs+ daily wear tine
