Little girl got her braces off!
Here’s what they looked like 30 minutes before that photo
I wish I had a before photo handy to show you just how much her front teeth have straightened up in the last year. One of her teeth was at a 45 degree angle. Which was an improvement over it growing in just about sideways a few years ago, a full 90 degrees off. It straightened out some on its own, but it took some hardware and some ortho bills to straighten it the rest of the way.
We celebrated by heading straight to the candy shop in the mall and got a bag of chewy gummy candy that she hadn’t been able to eat for the past year.
We’ll be back for round 2 of braces in a few years, but for now it’s going to be nice to enjoy being braces (and braces bills) free.
