oh okay I looked it up. I had something called "arch bars" that held my jaw shut with a bunch of elastics

are arch bars braces?

it wasn't braces so much as a metal band with hooks on it for elastics. It was anchored along my upper and lower gums and then about twenty elastics used to immobilize my jaw. It wasn't "braces" per se but I did enjoy the hardware nonetheless

The second time I was braced the whole experience was a highlight.

What treatment did you have the first and second time? Any appliances?

never braces, but I did have my jaw wired shut for about two months when I was sixteen. It was a nice experience, but I just wish I didn't have a broken jaw when it happened.

wow yeah that sucks!
If you don't mind me asking, how did they attach the wires to wire your jaw shut if you didn't have braces?
