We took Brooklin in today to get braces. She is supposed to have them for 20 months. She is missing both of her second top teeth, so the braces are going to pull her front teeth together (which have never touched in her entire life) and pull her canine teeth back...and of course straighten everything else out. Next, she will be fitted with two new fake teeth in the holes created by the braces. After awhile, she will have permanent fake teeth (I can't remember the correct term for this) put in.
The amazing thing about this is, here in Hawaii the bill came up to around $3200. In Alaska, the bill was going to be $7000 for the same procedure!! I'm so glad we waited!!
