Great pics,you are very fortunate MikeB having a pretty wife with a mouth full of metal.I would imagine many people on this forum are very envious ,I certainly am,is she experiencing the pain you always get the next day as the wires pull the teeth into position.

I also agree

thanks for sharing the pictures

it brings back strong memories of when my "ex" fiancée had a full set of braces fitted to correct a minor imperfection, but was willing to do it for me as well (2000 to 2002), such a long time ago

the metal braces also suit your wife perfectly, she must wear them with pride, and you must enjoy them every single day, before you know it the treatment is over.

Thanks for the kind words. I appreciate it. I've been sharing these compliments with my wife, as well, and she feels very flattered by the nice things everyone is saying.

I'll be adding pics to Flickr pretty steadily. One of my requirements for her is that she send me at least one selfie a day. I'll be adding these to the Photobucket as I receive them. I'm also requiring her to write a weekly journal to chronicle her braces experience.

I'll also be posting some close-up pics of her braces as soon as she's ready for a lip spreader. Right now the inside of her mouth is still a little too tender. Regarding that, she tried the Comfort Covers last night, and reports they really help with the inside of her mouth. She's also been using the Orajel designed to help with mouth sores, and that's been helpful, too.

Nothing as far as treatment. I don't know if I mentioned that she has bite stoppers. They're driving her a little crazy, since it's difficult for her to chew properly. Other than that, she's doing very well.

If anyone is interested, I can post about the varying reactions she's gotten to her braces from friends and family. It's not really treatment-oriented, of course.

Sure thing.

From the day after she got her braces:

We went out and made the rounds of several of our favorite downtown pubs. She was eager to get out of the house, so off we went. Reactions:

Pub 1 - no comment at all from the pretty young bartender, whom we've known for a couple of years. She definitely noticed the braces, but was too polite to say anything.

Pub 2 - no comment at all from the gruff Irish-immigrant bartender we've known for a year. I seriously think he didn't even notice, but if he did he clearly didn't care one whit.

Walking between Pubs 2 and 3, we ran into a couple of gay guys we're pretty good friends with. No comments until my wife said, "Look what I did!" and pointed to her mouth. One said, "I noticed! How long do you need to have them?" She told him a year and a half. The other just said, "Well, that's way better than having them four years of high school like I did." And that was that.

Pub 3 - no comments from the two Hooters girls. We didn't know either of them, though we do know some of the bartenders there. Mainly we just wanted to sit on the patio because it was a beautiful afternoon.

Pub 4 - Biggest reaction in this Italian restaurant/wine bar. The gay bartender immediately asked, "What's in your mouth?" She showed and said she got braces yesterday. He told her she didn't need braces and she gave him the song and dance about the bite corrections and the Hollywood smile. He accepted it and that was the end of it. He and I talked about working out way more than they did about braces.

Apparently straight people don't care and gay people care a tiny bit, haha!

From the Sunday after she got her braces:

I took her to the Suns (pro basketball) game. She grew up watching basketball with her father and brothers, and loves it to this day. We stopped at our favorite local sports bar (Pub 1 above) for a couple of pints prior to the game. It was pretty crowded, and she got some reactions to her new braces:

A bartender we've known since the place opened five years ago, had zero reaction. We chatted with him quite a bit - we know him pretty well - and while I could tell he noticed, he either didn't care or was too polite to comment.

An absolutely gorgeous (literally a model and actress in TV commercials) young server we've known for a couple of years, came bounding up to us in her usual very energetic way. I sometimes compare this girl to Tigger because of her boundless, happy, bouncing, friendly energy. First thing she said: "Look at you with those braces!" with a big smile. That was the extent of her comments on the braces, and we moved on to talking about all the big events scheduled for downtown Phoenix that weekend.

A fellow regular at this pub is an older and completely henpecked man. He was drunk and I could tell he wanted to ask about the braces. But he's terrified of women, so he refrained.

Another bartender we've know for a couple of years, visited with us for a few minutes. He said, "You got braces? Did you need braces?" She gave a short explanation about wanting a perfect smile and the conversation moved on. This bartender is quite young, about 24, and I think he's fairly accustomed to women in his age group having braces, so it's no big deal to him.

The best was another server, a great guy we've known for a couple years. We know him well enough that we occasionally hang out with him outside the bar. He came up and said, "Look at those train tracks!" She acknowledged and smiled at him. Not satisfied, he said, "No, let me really see those things!" So she gave him a giant grin so he could see her braces in all their metal glory. He asked the usual questions about why and how long. Finally he said, "But your teeth were good before. Are you spending money just to spend money?" She talked about the gaps in her teeth plus her bite issues, and then we moved on to other topics, like our horrible local pro sports teams.

We went to the game, which was surprisingly competitive considering our young and inexperienced team playing against some borderline NBA superstars. We went to the beer stand twice. She did not get carded, which I think disappointed her slightly. She commented about how this was her "first Suns game in braces." She also kept teasing me by discreetly running her tongue over her braces. Oh man!

After the game, we dropped into the sports bar again (it's between the basketball arena and our condo). This time we ran into a middle-aged retired couple we know pretty well. We all chatted at the bar, and after about 15 minutes, the woman noticed the braces and they talked about them for several minutes. I missed most of it because I was talking to the man about a musical they'd just seen at the local theatre. But the woman came across as extremely supportive, almost enthusiastic. In fairness, she and her husband were both pretty tipsy.

Lastly, another female bartender turned around from the cash register and just said, "YOU LOOK SO CUTE!" My wife smiled and was all happy.

It was a fun night!

Reactions from her family have ranged from envy (her older sister REALLY wants braces of her own) to supportive "Good for you!" type statements from her parents (her father also had adult braces).

One of her friends just said, "You didn't tell me you were getting braces!"

Her best friend knows the *real* reason she got braces. We hung out with her to watch a Final Four game last weekend. She wasn't terribly interested in the braces. She just said, "Well, you look like a normal person who has braces."

Of the best friend's buddies was more interested and kept steering the conversation back to my wife's braces. He teased her on and off about them, but I didn't hear much of it since I was talking to someone else. When he left, though, he told me, "You must be a really happy guy!" He was being sarcastic, of course. If only he knew!

Hi Jonny 12 - thanks for the kind words. I do pass along these compliments to my wife, and of course she loves it. Attention is the coin of the female realm! Yesterday she even asked how the "braces guys" are doing and if they're still enjoying her daily selfies.

As I mentioned to someone in a PM, I don't know how much of all this is luck versus carefully and intentionally maneuvering my/our life to make this possible. But I am very grateful that I found a woman who was willing to do this for me. I certainly went through a lot of women before I met her!

I'll keep posting her selfies on Flickr. Last night's was from the local pro hockey game (last home game of the season). Today it'll be from the pro baseball game! She's still waiting to get carded buying a beer, and I think she's a little disappointed that she hasn't been.

Went to a pretty good friend's birthday party yesterday. Not many questions overall, but one guy seemed very interested. He made a point of coming to sit next to us, and he brought up her braces several times. It's pretty clear that he's had the hots for her for a couple of years now - we move in the same circle of friends - but he seemed extra interested yesterday. Hmmmm.

I talked to my wife over dinner last night, about a PM I received here from someone who was having difficulty talking to his partner about the braces fetish. She told me she'd be more than happy to correspond with girlfriends and wives about the whole braces fetish, fake braces, how she came around to getting real braces, etc. Someone else's wife did this for her and I think this is my wife's way of "paying it forward."

She also said she wouldn't mind posting here in the forum, since she's journaling about the experience anyway. Not sure yet if I'll just post her comments under my username, or if I'll get her set up with her own username. Any username suggestions more interesting than "MikeBs Wife"?  ;D

I have been reading your posts right from the first time you posted about your wife's braces journey. I have really enjoyed  what I have seen posted, both here and on the picture site. It sure seems as if she is happy with her decision to get braces.

I think that she should have her own account. It would be very interesting to hear what she has to say in her own words. As for a username, maybe something like "Mrs B"

You could always try some more unusual names such as BracesQueen, QueenOfBraces, or something like BeuatyInBraces. :)

She and I talked about it last night over dinner, and she'll create her own account here.

I'll let her pick her username. Maybe she'll take one of those suggested!

Whew, what a weekend! We went to see Big Bad Voodoo Daddy Friday night then turned it around and went to Vegas for two nights. We danced, we sang, drank good wine and cheap beer, played billiards, watched the desert sunsets, drank "mimosas in the rainbow," ate tapas and fine Italian food, shopped at the Venetian, got lost in the MGM Grand, and people-watched on the Strip.

Minor disaster struck when one of her brackets broke loose, the lower right canine. Her upper canine was touching it and finally knocked it off. She's going in for a repair this afternoon, but I suspect they'll also enlarge her bite stoppers, which will be a low-grade irritation for her. I told her she needs to make me before-and-after videos.  >:D

Confirmed, her bite stoppers were made much larger. I'll put a pic on Flickr.

My wife is about to resume treatment after over a years hiatus. Despite this spelling the beginning of the end of my braced babe (maybe 6 months left), it'll be great seeing new things happening in her mouth! I just feel sorry for her after painful adjustments.

Glad to hear things are going well with your wife's treatment, sounds like she's taking everything in her stride

Your wife took a pause in treatment? Why's that?

My wife's doing pretty well. She doesn't like the new, larger bite stops very much, but she managed to eat normally last night. Other than the loose bracket and the bigger bite stops, everything's been pretty smooth sailing.
