hello im 16 and i have regular braces at the moment, and I was looking at the * Parts of your braces page * and i noticed that i had head gear tubes on my top bands.....Does this mean i'll have to get head gear...He never said anything about it....Are they going to surprise me with headgear one of these days.....AHHH please help...If anyone has head gear..could you email me and tell me what its like..It kinda freaks me out...

No if you ahve headgear tubes that means nothing. The headgear tubes are on all of the bands just to save the orthodontist some $$$$$$
Ela (.......?) - 24/Dec/2002 8:15:31 PM

That doesn't actually look so bad. But I'd get a hell of a lot of stick if I wore one of them to school =/

jus me (..) - 16/Apr/2003 4:01:07 AM
actually anna, that sounds exciting :D! i had braces for umm about a year and a half now and I never had anything real interesting like the things on this page. be sure to tell us how it goes! I'm sure it wont be that bad if YOu cant really notice it.. infact i like it when the ortho or techs are talkin outloud about my teeth and meeeee :D
stephy () - 20/Apr/2003 2:56:28 AM
shen i first got my braces 4 years ago my ortho told me i would have to wear a headgear. it has now been 2 years that they removed my braces and i never had to wear that thing. so if your ortho tells you you'll BROBABLY need it, dont worry maybe they will just use elastics.
Ellen () - 21/Apr/2003 7:11:47 PM
I wear my headgear all the time and I LOVE it.
awe () - 16/May/2003 6:23:46 PM

vicky () - 19/May/2003 10:29:54 AM
i know that i really need braces and especially a headgear...but i've heard it's too expensive...does anyone know how much it costs
stephy () - 20/Jul/2003 5:08:04 PM
what does headgear correct? does it correct overbite?
() - 21/Jul/2003 6:56:37 AM
it corrects overbite by pushing your molars back. i can see and feel the gap between my teeth!
Jimmy () - 30/Jul/2003 12:17:13 AM
I am 14 and I'm getting braces and headgear real soon and I'm freaked out. Can someone tell me if I have to wear the headgear sometimes or all the time and how bad is it?
james () - 01/Aug/2003 10:27:01 AM
im 15 and have a pretty big overbite. im about to get double fixed braces fitted. My ortho said that i will probably need to wear headgear at some point during my treatment. This freaked me out - i dont want to have to wear headgear! Could anyone who has headgear please give me an idea of how bad your teeth were before you got it. i would like to get a better idea of whether i need it. Maybe i should just see a different ortho?
