Before and After



Today Lauren got her braces and expander/retainer on. She was very brave. Right now her mouth is a little sore but not too bad. She'll have a beautiful smile in no time. Actually this is phase 1. I wonder how many "phases" it will take...

It's great that she is getting started at this age. I'm sure the phases will last a couple of years. Have to wait until the teeth come out so they can be straightened :}

Wow! So, does she have the wire on, too? Or just the brackets so far?
What about your phase of being old enough to have a kid in braces? ;)

That is so cool. my mom and I were wondering who said they were getting braces, and now we know. It will be exciting to see everyone at Christmas time!

P.S. check my blog on Saturday.

I sooo remember when I got my braces on. My mouth was so sore! Does Lauren get to choose the colors of the bands? That was the best part! Your teeth will be so beautiful Lauren!

Cute Lauren! You are getting better at talking with them too! You look great! Just think you can do green and red elastics for Chrismas! ;)
