i don’t want to wear my twin block braces! Watch
But just consider what you have been through to get to the stage of having them.
They do without doubt much improve the teeth as I can vouch for when I wore them.
You need to think of the long term picture.
Dont worry if they take the Mickey, they will soon get fed up with it and move on.
Good luck I hope you make the right decision which is best for you.
