The wee people have been in desperate need of braces for SOME time now.
At the end of August, the process got started. They went and had some teeth pulled. Both of them.
Here is the before:
And the after:
Doodle always swells up when put under anesthesia. What a difference it makes though to have those fangs removed for BOTH of them.
A couple weeks later, they went in to have their HARDWARE installed.
Don't they look thrilled?
That night was ROUGH. Each of them in pain. Eating all kinds of soft foods.
I remember the hell of braces myself. I know the pain, the chewed up cheeks, the broken wires stabbing you, and not being able to eat some of your favorite foods is TOTALLY worth it.
Trying to convince them of this? Like beating your head against a brick wall. I did remind them that it could be worse. They could have head gear........
At least my two metal mouth, brace faced cuties are rockin the bands well. Can't wait to see what they look like when they come off!
