The same orthodontist who did my braces (before I lost all my baby teeth and who had put them on tightly enough to damage my teeth from the strain and keep me from talking or eating for a long, long time) also put braces on kids as young as five. Had I known what I know now AND had a say in the matter, I'd have told this idiot to bite me, punch him in the teeth, and walked away rather than get the damnable braces to begin with.
A little over a decade late, my teeth still hurt, are still damaged no matter how well I take care of them, and I'm pretty certain will eventually have to be taken out. I've already had a few root canals at age 16. Can't afford another one. So my bottom right first molar must be extracted. A few days ago the thing just simply broke off without warning like it had just given up. Constant tooth pain for so long and an inability to smile in photos other than a forced closed-mouthed smile. All because the same idiot who works on pagent girls' teeth to make them pretty told me I was going to have serious problems without braces at a young age. What do you call this then? If I meet the guy again, I'll kick him in the teeth and see how he likes people screwing with his teeth. I hate money-hungry orthodontists.
