    I was born without wisdom teeth so they lined up fine when the adult teeth came in.

    Probably the only good thing about my teeth is that they grew how they were supposed to. --> :D
    But they have other weaknesses ... i have to brush with one of those toothpastes for sensitive teeth or else everytime i eat icecream or smthing really sweet i feel that my teeth are going to explode.

    I was lucky.
    My parents were dental hygiene nazis, so I have spotless teeths. But not wearing braces has nothing to do with brushing your teeths or not eating too many sweets, it is purely luck. My sister had to wear some...

    I had braces for about 2 years starting in 6th grade. However, I *still* have to wear both a bottom and upper retainer during the night, which is getting quite tiresome (especially since they're filthy now, and resist all cleaning).

    There is none... if you don't currently have them, just put "no, I never have"

    I had braces way back when I was twelvish.

    Edit: I also had a different set of braces when I was 8-9yo. Dunno how I managed to forget that.

    I had an upper brace that I had to wear during the night. This was way back when, and was only for a couple of years.

    I wore braces from when I was about ages 12-14.

    Now I have them off, and I have the best teeth around!

    So is having braces a sin? :confused:

    P.S. - Great use of the word "wonky".

    Dunno; is vanity a sin? I was being facetious really.
