“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday I went to the dentist for the regular-clean up. I didn’t have any cavities!, but the dentist recommended me to go to an orthodontist to get braces; not that I have to, but just a recommendation (I know I have bad teeth). The thing is I’m in my 40’s, and although I would like for my teeth to look better, I’m kind of not feeling like spending the next 2 -3 ( ! ) years with some metal on my teeth. He explained about another method of doing this that takes longer to fix the problems, he himself used this last procedure recently (he is older than me) and told me that if he had to do it again, he would go with the braces because is faster.

Should I do it or not?”
