Did any moms here have braces? Do you think your children are going to need them?
I never had braces, but my 14 year old daughter is now on her second round of braces. She had them first in 4th grade, due to a severe cross bite. She wore them for 6 months then and had a retainer that she wore until last year. She's now in round two, and has 6 months more to go. She currently has green & blue bands on them.
All four of my kids kind of need braces, some worse than others.
I dread it.
The boys are too young to be able to know, but I need them.
I wore them and still have a permanent retainer cemented in. DS will not need them. Thank goodness he's got his daddy's teeth!
I had braces and I am pretty sure both of my girls will need them too. My oldest had to have surgery about 2 years ago because she had extra gum tissue between her front two teeth...made for one heck of a gap! LO. So, they have already said she will need braces to correct the gap.
I did. I know at least one of my kids will. She actually has her first records appointment scheduled. That's where they will take impressions and specialized xrays. Then the dentist will look at them and we will sit down with him to make a plan.
I never had braces and I dont' think either of my kids will need them.
I didnt, but I do thing atleast my oldest is going to need them
