When (in about) did you see an adult wearing removable braces or retainer (no invisalign, no retainer wire in lower jaw or something similar) in public the last time?
Please do not include orthodontic offices (it's not public, anyway) or what else falsifies the poll's result.

Fairly regularly around here. I see on average at least one person a day who wears braces, and probably once or twice a week an adult wearing retainers.

I woman started at my work a month or so ago and the first day she worked, she was wearing a retainer. Unfortunately, I haven't seen her wear it since.

My poll should have been 'one or a few weeks ago,' I accidentally chose 'more than 10 years.' I would say that I see an adult with a retainer every couple of months or so. A couple of co-workers in the past who had braces, (when they were working with me), did not seem to wear their retainers for very long after their braces came off. I do not know if they were slacking or   if they had bonded ones put in.

I seen a girl working at a restaurant I was at earlier today with a retainer. I'm not sure how old she was though, looked early 20's
