About how much longer will I have to wear my braces? I`ve had the since the beginning of 5th grade, and I`m in 7th now.
I cannot answer your question because I don't know what your original problem was. You should get a straight forward answer by asking your orthodontist this question.
If he/she is waiting for you to cooperate, that may be the reason for a qualified answer. For example, you might need to wear elastics better, so ask direct questions. I'm sure you will get your answer.
