    I was walking to a fancy dress shop with my friends, chatting kind of excited and didn't see it coming. Bam walked into it and ended up in A and E it was horrible! And I wasnt even drunk...

    Had them when i was 11, top and bottom for my crossbite then when i was 15 just on the top to straighten out a tooth that was growing a bit lower than the other. First time i had them for about 18 months and second time was 9 months.

    Mine were on for eighteen months, although my teeth are still a bit on the crowded side. I think it runs in the family.

    I had them for about a year when I was 13ish then had a permanent wire that you cant see put behind my front top and bottom teeth. Also still wear a retainer most nights. Haven't worn it for a while though and now I've put it back in I can feel my teeth have moved a bit. Well worth it though, my teeth were terrible before but love em now, and hopefully they'll stay like this
