Do/did any of your kids have braces? Did you have braces?
The youngest, my DD did. Just got them off if July right before her 18th Birthday. I had braces growing up.
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.
my oldest SD did but I didn't
