I’ve had braces twice, the first was over 25 years ago and my orthodontist used full metal bands and the second time I had metal on top and bottom. I prefer metal the orthodontist I go to would rather use metal on adults. Because our teeth are harder to move.

I had braces twice also. Fullbands first time an second time ceramic on top and metal bottom. If I could do it again I would go all metal. They are smaller and people can see you have braces either way.

I would prefer normal removeable devices (no invisaligns) for light crooked teeth.

if a fixed device is neccessary i´d choose normal brakets. with ceramical brakets there is alwas a light difference between teeh colour and the ceramic, so it looks like you didn´t clean your theeth proper.

Fixed.metal braced and headgear. I would hate it, but later I would love it.

I would definitely choose full metal. I don't like the way clear braces look (particularly from a distance), and I didn't like wearing my essix retainer, so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like wearing invisalign.

Depends on my age and treatment duration... rn I'm in my early 20s so I'd go for metal, but in my 30s I'd probably go for clear.

I just got back from my orthodontist and I am getting braces put on April 6. I had my records today and the Assistant measured me for a headgear. I am looking forward to wearing one also I am getting molar bands and premolar bands because of prior dental work.
