BEFORE TREATMENT AFTER TREATMENT Mary Clements in her 60’s also had fixed braces; she states “My teeth were a problem - my bite wasn’t correct and I had a ‘clicky’ jaw. I went to a dentist to talk about my terrible teeth and he said I was too old to have treatment, even though I was only just out of my teens!” “Eventually, in my 50’s, I started seeing a different dentist and she asked me why I didn’t have orthodontic treatment? I went to see Dr Ilori and he said he could help me and it felt really positive. Actually, wearing the braces did not bother me at all!” At Octagon Orthodontics we specialise in delivering beautiful smiles to adults and children using aesthetic, modern and invisible braces. All you have to do is book a consultation appointment and your journey of self-improvement will start straight away! DATING DILEMMAS A SURVIVAL GUIDE TO BRACES AND DATING Dating can be nerve racking enough without throwing braces into the mix. Questions like ‘Have they noticed yet?’ and ‘Will they care?’ are bound to enter the head of anybody in this situation In all likelihood your braces will either go unnoticed, or the person sitting at the other side of the table will be full of admiration and respect for your decision to undergo treatment. However, that is not to say that you can’t help your date run a bit more smoothly by avoiding embarrassing situations, which may inevitably begin with your choice of food! Here is our ultimate survival guide to dating with braces: Don’t try to hide your braces by covering your mouth with your hand, you’ll only bring more attention to yourself! Don’t spend the whole date talking about teeth (yours or theirs!). Remember that they are there because they are attracted to you, with or without braces (unless of course they have a brace fetish!). Avoid foods such as spaghetti and spinach, you don’t want a smile full of food! Don’t leave them the number of your orthodontist instead of your own!
