I hate it too. I had braces for 2 years then when I got them off I thought it would be the end. Two months later I fell face fisrt of my bike. Now I have to wear top and bottom braces with headgear for four years..It's not fair.

ok you know, there are newer and better ways of straightening your teeth with out the use of head gear on your braces. When I had braces the first orthodontist i went to was making my situation sound litterally 10 times worse than it really was. he exagerrated alot of things and told me i would have to wear head gear for up to 3 years. Uhh yeah right, I went to a diff. orthodontist and i only had my braces for a year and a half and no head gear, just rubber bands.

I have to wear hg, fortunately not all the time. I think, I even like it, but I don't want to use my hg in public.

I have to wear this kind of headgear all the time!!! :(

ya easier - our local ortho never gives people headgear. lots of people get rubberbands, she doesnt use HALF the stuff on this page, it all looks so cruel. All she gives out are brackets, elastics, and an ocasional retainer. BRACES OFF IN 3 MONTHS!! (but whose counting..) :D sorry for the people that have a more creative ortho!

I fell on my face when i was mountain biking last year. I knocked out 2 teeth and now i have to wear double braces and headgear to sort it out.it hurts really bad. My ortho wired it in because i wouldnt wear it so i hav it on 24/7, along with 3 coil springs. it makes ir real hard to eat and brush your teeth. It makes you look like an alien :(

Pity me. I have a severe TMJ disorder and the ortho is telling me that I'm going to have to wear the old style full banded braces (the ones with the metal bands that go around every single tooth) and this type of headgear wired in 24/7.
