    Yeah I'll keep you posted dw. = )

    Haha that's a bit like me I didnt realise some of college friends had them and when I pointed it out they tell me they've had for ages. = /

    How comes you getting them again though ?
    Thanks

    I had them on at 17 to straighten my teeth cosmetically, they were pretty inline but one was a little crooked and I'm a perfectionist. Having them on again to correct my overbite now.

    I had teeth two pre molars out in February and was told by my orthondontist it will take up to 6 months for the gaps to heal (with braces). It's not a problem though- after a couple of days you don't feel anything different.
    Does the actuall pulling the teeth hurt ? Im getting them in May now.

    I had mine done under a general so I didn't feel a thing. After one of my gums (where my tooth had been) started hurting, but thats only because it got infected. You get plenty of painkillers so you shouldn't have a problem.
