During one of Erin's routine check-ups on her head gear and expanders the orthodontist announced, "I think we'll do braces today," much to my and Erin's surprise. We knew braces would be coming but I hoped that they might come after some of the rest of the hardware in her mouth was taken out. She now has so much metal on, behind, around her teeth it's borderline impossible for her to brush her teeth adequately, which got her in trouble with the dentist at her check up there last week.
The good news: if she wears her head gear diligently she will be done with it in mid- to late summer. Yippee!
