    I am getting mine put on in a week, I go in for my spacers today.

    I am 22. I also have "fangs", and a few crooked teeth that are causin problems, but I am getting them on because my insurance has made it affordable for me.

    I would do it if is affordable to you at the moment. the cost was what was putting me off, but now I'm gonna do it.

    Get them if you can!

    You are never too old to do it.

    i decided to get braces in seventh/eighth grade because i felt that my two front teeth were rather "rabbity". the orthodontist told me it'd take two years. instead, it took 3-4yrs plus wearing retainers thru college and a wire permanently glued to the back of my bottom row of teeth. (and hell yea braces and retainers hurt man!)

    if you're not so insecure about the fangs, i wouldn't suggest it.

    the canine teeth is always longer & more labially placed(outside) in a normal condition. it gives the shape of the face & the canine is sharp in

    shape & used for tearing food.

    but go to a dentist for advice.
