It's been quite a few weeks here in the orthodontic department. A few weeks back R had oral surgery to remove two teeth in preparation for banding. A week after that, spacers were inserted between her back teeth....(boy have things changed, when I got my bands on I had to have spacers between every tooth!)...and then the day before school broke up, she had her bands fitted. I think at first she was a little sad that she had only one day to show them off before the holidays but that was before the pain of newly installed bands, the aching and the ulcers really kicked in!
Her mouth is settling down and we're getting used to this little face that we'll be seeing for about two more years!
