I've heard that there are some who've had braces twice! I think that may be because the first time they got em, they were still too young, and their teeth moved, perhaps they didn't wear their retainers, or their wisdom tooth popped out, it's just a domino effect. I'm wearing braces now, my ortho told me it's gonna be for 2 years, *keeping my fingers crossed*.

I have them now. I got my top ones off recently. I am not happy with the results so after I get my bottom ones off I will be going to another orthodontist and getting them again so another 2 years in braces coming up for me!
