Bracing myself for years of dental awkwardness!
February 9, 2014 5:26 PM Subscribe
After having a normal dental childhood without braces, my front teeth have shifted significantly in the past couple years
and now that I have a steady job and dental insurance (which I think only partially covers the cost of braces, if at all), I am looking forward to have straighter teeth but don't know what to look forward to with braces as an adult.

I have my first consultation with an orthodontist tomorrow.
I have a lot of basic questions (How long will they have to be on?, etc) that will be answered tomorrow but what did you wish that you would have known before you started braces as an adult?
What other questions should I ask that would make me learn whether orthodontist is overcharging me and that they are competent?
