    Oh my god… I feel your pain! I just went to the orthodontist today. I’ve had braces for nine years. Today they added something new–elastics. Fantastic! They changed the wires too so I am feeling as sore as you look, hun.

    As a child, I had braces. They were installed by a sadist in Philadelphia. My family moved out West and I went to an orthodontist in Seattle. He got the cast of my teeth before (from the sadist) and took one of my teeth with braces on. His comment, “let’s get this crap off your teeth – they’re worse now than when he began.”

    My sister had orthodontics for years. The only good outcome from that was getting the charges dropped when she was arrested for biting a policeman at the ’68 convention. Her orthodontist testified that she couldn’t have done it because she couldn’t open her mouth enough to bite anybody.

    I suppose her teeth were better, then she had a bad car accident and undid all the good dental work. Life happens.
