  • I had braces for 4 years. I had to wear rubberbands for 8 months, which were annoying as hell. Taking them off, for eating was easy, but I had to hook them back with the hook thing, which was a pain.

      I just used my fingers, and frequently impaled myself on the wires.
  • I had them when I was 16...I had them on for 18 mos. Yes I had rubber bands and every other imaginable device! I will have, as of April, a whole mouth full of them again...up to and including rubber bands. Fortunately at the ripe old age of 43 I won't care too much about my tin grin.
  • I have braces on now. I had them for three months sos far.. No, I don't have to wear rubber bands.
  • yep I had braces for 2 years I didnt have rubber bands though, I was supposed to get them and then they decided I didnt need them which was cool. But I wonder if I could of had better teeth. I was supposed to get a palate expander and then the day I went to get it put on I got full braces on instead and never got an expander. My teeth look ok but they took the braces off sooner than they said which at the time I thought was great but now looking back on it I wish they left them on for longer. Im thinking about getting them again but this time with a better ortho.
  • i did. got them on in october of 7th grade and off november 4th of 9th grade. and yes many many rubber bands. ahhh! i think i went crazy and for like 2 years after would find little rubber bands EVERYWHERE!
  • I am an adult wearing braces with headgear and a tongue crib. I have had them on for about 8 months now and have several more years in braces. I don't have any elastics at this point. My wife also has braces with an expander and she does wear elastics.
