A memory a day - 30 - Toothy terrors
About 12 or 13, braces to straighten rather protruding fangs, which I actually quite like the idea of now! The scariest experience here though was the orthodontist telling me before putting the braces on that he thought I was a prime candidate for a new kind of teeth straightening where they would pull all my teeth out, straighten them and then put them back in. I completely believed him so after many gummy nightmares I was a quivering wreck upon going back for the next appointment where thankfully he just glued some rather ugly lumps of metal track to my teeth instead.
