My teeth, especially the bottom ones are very crooked and braces would help. I'm working towards a degree right now and am very short of money. I enjoy smiling, but the smile's become borderline hideous...not that it stops me.
I had heard of people going to Mexico or other places to get procedures done, including braces for MUCH cheaper including plane ticket.
Has anyone had any experience with this? If so, I know that braces need adjustments so would an orthodontist here agree to do it? Would it even be smart to get anyone but the original orthodontist (in Mexico) to do the follow ups?
Secondly, how safe are braces as far as metals in the human body go? Can anyone suggest any alternatives? It's too bad oil swishing couldn't realign teeth :)
Thank you all in advance
