Mansel's Treasures

Mansel is starting the process of getting braces put on his teeth.  He has his dad's big teeth in my little mouth.  Most of our kids do.  All of them are going to need braces, if they want their teeth to line up normally, and not sideways, which they are doing now. 

First - select a plan.  We selected to have adult teeth pulled, and other teeth moved into place.  Should take about 2 years, from beginning to end.

Second - put plan into action.  We have begun.  He got 4 teeth pulled today.  He says it didn't hurt.  His mind said, "fight or flight" and tried to faint dead away.  So we interceeded and had him lie down a bit. 

Third - spacers.

Fourth - then braces.  Here we go!!  I can't wait to see the finished product.  :)

P.s.  I noticed this didn«t publish.  Oops - his hwppened in January.  His teeth are looking great.
