Ortho adventure #3

So R1 hasn't even had braces for a week and we have a problem.

First I have to say that R1 has been very diligent in brushing and flossing extensively every day. And he was really great about the pain that goes with having braces
. He hardly ever complained and he only asked for Advil once.

Yesterday while at school, a wire popped out of the bracket and is now loose.

So this means a trip back to the ortho and more time I need to take off work to get him there.

I see many more visits to the Dr.'s office in our future. Or at least that is what my crystal ball says.

Who are y'all taking him to? Brother and I went to Dr. Reynard YEARS and YEARS ago. His office is still there, and his name is still on the sign...but I think another doc's name is on the sign, too. Mom would always schedule our visits before school...I always wanted to miss history class. I really don't know how you guys manage it all...both working full time. That's a definite juggling act.

Oh yeah, the dreaded bracket coming loose or off, wires coming out...BACK to the ortho! Our orthodontist is actually about 45 minutes away! So that makes it even more fun!!

But just think, straight teeth....straight teeth..straight teeth :)

I think Kaish needs some. Did your dentist tell you when it was time to get them?
