That Will Be A NO

I finally had my braces consult. There will be no way I am getting braces. First, I would have to go have my jaw broken and wired shut. This has to be done by an oral surgeon. That is before the braces work even starts. The braces alone would cost $4800, not counting the oral surgeon work. My teeth really are not that bad. I am going to check in and see if I can get someone to make me a retainer so that I can wear it at night to prevent my teeth from moving further.

There are simply too many other things I want to do with the money.

I'm sorry the news was so shocking. I had braces as an adult and the going price (I found out) is typically $4500 to $5000. The oral surgery would be more. Keep it in mind though. If it'll make you feel more confident, think about it. If it's not a big deal, bag it. That's my 2 cents. :)
