i have a gap in between my front teeth.
Im 18 and my wisdom teeth havent fully come out but they're starting too.
basically ,he wants to put braces only on top teeth and make them straight( but also move them backwards like 0,1 mm or smt, he said its insignificant)
should my face change? ( i have to wear it for a year) or should i do spark braces or invisalign?

Braces are OK just be careful with shit that fixes/shifts back jaw and whatnot like rubber bands/retainer

not shifting any jaw, just pushing the front teeth a bit back(to fix gaps).

99% of doctors don't care about your looks
yup! They do care about the looks of your internal organs, and other systems, but somehow, what you look like the from the outside means nothing. lmao

People here may tell you braces are okay, or whatever. But the objective truth is that they dont address why your teeth are crooked or hvae an issue in the first place. So even if they had 0 negative effects why not go for the right treatment with an orthotropist, forwardontist or airway centric dentist? lmao
