Happy July!!

Did you have braces as a kid (or as an adult)?

No, I didn't. I probably should have though. My teeth are messed up. My teeth don't touch in the front and as I result I can't bite things properly...like pepperoni on pizza and such. SO annoying.

No and I wish I had for cosmetic reasons. I have a gap in front, I guess it's not terrible but I don't have pretty teeth. I thought of getting braces as an adult but it's never the priority for spending money on.

I didn't - my teeth are still fairly straight, but the actual shape of my teeth is sort of bizarre. They're super flat among other things, but braces can't fix that Wink Maybe veneers someday...

I had major orthodontics. An appliance for 2 years and braces for 3.5 years.

Then I missed them right up again by not wearing my retainer. Idiot.

Yes, as a kid for 6+ years!

I had a HUGE overbite. I'm praying my kids don't get it.

As an adult my wisdom teeth came in and moved my very straight teeth, so I might need them again to fix this one tooth on the bottom

I had the gap too and they removed a piece in my gums that apparently causes that.

Nope and I am surprised I never needed them before I lost my baby teeth I had a pretty large gap in the front teeth.My lowers are a tiny bit crowded but nothing that would require braces.

Jon and I both lucked out in this area. We thought that meant our kids would too. They had perfect baby teeth, super straight, no gaps, etc. but Tori's adult teeth are coming in pretty funky. :/
