“Adult Braces”

Now, to be clear, this is not a slander against the people who wear adult braces, but more the image it conjures in my mind. I think I probably don’t dislike the words uttered as much as the wearers of adult braces, but it’s hard not to see them and pass a superficial judgement, however shallow that sounds of me. Maybe I just could not imagine MYSELF wearing them.

As an aside, however, adult braces do lead to a much more pleasant word pairing: “straight teeth”, so it’s not all bad on the orthodontic front.
