Before and After Braces

Emma recently ended a 1-1/2 year relationship.....

with her metallic smile.

Emma was our third child to need a full work-up with braces...

a fact which no doubt brought their orthodontist a step closer to retirement.  
Little does he know that there are still two more kids to come...

We're just happy that we're more than half-way done with paying out arms and legs to our orthodontist now!  

Some notes:  
  • Emma took meticulous care of her teeth while they were in braces and got compliments from both the dentist and orthodontist at what good condition her teeth and gums were in.   

  • Emma's teeth were the best of the kids so far, requiring a few months less treatment than both Spence and Cam. 

  • My other kids had forbidden foods they were excited to eat as soon as their braces came off (caramel, corn on the cob, etc), but Emma's biggest excitement was finally being able to floss normally!

Nice!! We are getting ready for two kids to get braces!! I was really hoping that we wouldn't, but Blake and Emma seem to have the same dental schedule....losing their teeth at the same time!!
