<quoted text> I kept my braces when the ortho removed them, they clip on and off of my teeth and keep my teeth straight just like my retainers. I like to change the different colors sometimes.

That's insane. Wearing "fake" braces can be really damaging to your teeth. What's sad is that PP were probably right in that it was for "status" (because only the wealthy can afford orthodontics). I think we take for granted sometimes how fortunate we are to have local orthodontists in the United States.
