Christian Gets Braces

At the ripe ol' age of 8 (almost 9), Christian now has braces!  

A few weeks ago, the orthodontist placed a pallet expander across the roof of his mouth, and the braces were part two of the process.   He just doesn't have enough room in his mouth for all of his incoming adult teeth.

The braces will be on 6-9 months (or according to Christian, "forever).    And then once his adult teeth have come in, he'll be getting a second round of braces to align everything properly.

Naturally, Scarlett is jealous because Brother got something she doesn't have.   HA! 

Fortunately, the brackets are only on his four front teeth.  So that makes them easy to clean and maintain.
