I met a guy my age in braces

I was in a line today and the guy behind me said hello. He pointed to his lower arches and said "Hey, we both have braces, I can't believe I'm 44 and have braces." I said, so am I so you are not alone.

He only has braces on the bottoms as he said his bottoms were very crooked. He actually had one extraction done. He's had braces since August of last year and has two more months to go. Lucky guy. He had metallic brackets with metallic wire and a clear powerchain going from molar to molar.

I've actually seen a lot of people in their 40s wear braces. In my office, there are actually two ladies here who wear braces and they don't even seem to mind. The next time I visit my dentist, Rock Hill dental clinic, I will ask him how common it is for people in their 40s to have braces. I know for a fact that it is very helpful to have a friendly oral care specialist to be there to assist you with your dental health concerns, like my brilliant dentist. Tega Cay City has definitely one of the best treatment centers I've ever tried.
