    Help in finding the right verb?

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by Euphemias, Mar 3, 2011.

    Hi. I'm SOOOO sorry to bother, but may I receive advice on this little piece I'm writing? I can't find the right verb for this sentence: She explained to me that just the day before, she went to the orthodontist to get(????) braces.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on what word I can use ins?

    'get' is all the verb you need...

    unless you mean 'to get her braces put on'...
