So im going into my senior year of highschool next year and I still have my braces. I still have them because I have an impacted tooth with means that one of my teeth has still not come down. 5 years ago they did surgery where they put a chain on the tooth and attatched it to my braces to pull it down. 5 years later it's right above my gum line but still hasn't come down. I went to the ortho yesterday and I asked if they could be off by the time of senior pictures (August) and he laughed in my face. So basically if I continue to wait for the tooth to come down I will have braces through whole senior year. I could just tell the ortho that I give up and I want him to take out the tooth and put in an inplant, but will I regret that for the rest of my life? I reallllly hate having braces because I've never had a boyfriend and don't have a good record with boys. People have had a crush on me but I'm convinced they've never seen my smile. So should I keep the tooth or no?
How much will having braces my senior year affect me?

The braces are for your own good and when they will do there work your teeth will look good, I also have braces and it doesn't effect me and it's good for you that you had some people who had crush on you, a girl has never crushed on me0
just because you have braces does not mean you can't smile0

Braces are NOT a big deal! They're so common these days, no one really thinks too much about it. I had then for 5 years, all through high school. No one teased me about my braces, and I was one of those awkward weird kids that everyone picked on.1
