I am 28 & have a major underbite. To add to it I am a female & it’s ruined my self image. When i go out people think I am mad but I actually am embaressed to smile. So i had braces for 4 yrs as a early teen & of course they just took my parents money & didnt inform me of the underbite. I realized later in life that I look different. So the braces were already off when I realized what an underbite is & that I have one. Now I am facing $4,500 in braces AGAIN & surgery because I hate the way it looks. The older I get the more it bothers me. So about the last year I have secluded myself in my house & dont go anywhere unless mandatory. Finally I swallowed my pride & decided I will do the braces just to get the surgery. If I had a choice I would never do the braces but will 100% do the surgery & YES MY UNDERBITE HAS RUINED MY LIFE

@svico14 Well I’m 20 and not freaking out yet, but the exact same thing seems to have happened to me with the braces.
