 I had them.

Ds1 had them, and still would if he had been brushing his teeth well- he wasn't, so the ortho took them off early. Not happy w/ ds1 on that one. . .

Ds2 had them for about 6 months. It was just to do an initial correction on an overbite that was starting to affect his speech. Once he's grown more, gets more adult teeth, and brushes a bit better, he'll get them back on.

Dd hasn't had them yet, but most likely will need them.

So far none of my kids have had them. I didn't but I needed them.

I did not have braces even though I could have used them, lol. My daughter currently has braces and have no clue if any of my other kids will need them in the future.

No.   I do have a retainer, which I just got!    I had one as a kid to close the gap between my front teeth.  As an adult, I had a back tooth extracted and my teeth shifted causeing the gap to reappear over time.

My sons and I are fortunate to have straight teeth.

I never had braces and did not need them at all. My daughters are 13 and 11 and just got braces last weekend. They will have them for about a year and a half or so. They don't desperately need them, but their teeth are a little crooked so it's good to get them all straightened out :)

My dd had them, my oldest son currently has them. I am hoping my youngest son won't need them but don't think we'll get that lucky. I had braces when I was an adult.
