Yesterday, B. had the spacer removed that has been hanging out in the roof of her mouth for several months. She also got more braces on her top teeth. Now each top tooth has something attached to it.
She’s thrilled to have the spacer gone, but not so happy about the additional brackets being added.
The orthodontist said that when her top teeth catch up with her bottom teeth, it will be time to add bottom braces. She’s right on track with is plan for her teeth, so all is well. I’m still just so thankful that she won’t need to have surgery to shorten her lower jawbone, like he had originally thought when he consulted with our family dentist.
