Yesterday I took all the kids in for an orthodontist visit. Thankfully, the visit didn't cost me as much as a few airline tickets to the States.
William's retainer is still doing a great job, so he'll come back in six months. Benjamin does have some very crooked bottom teeth, but the orthodontist said they would straighten out some as they continue to grow in, but will need some work in the future, but not now - bring him back in a year.
Did you hear my checking account screaming "THANK YOU!!"???
Then there was Melissa. Not really liking what he saw, he took x-rays to make sure all is well. When I sat down with him and the x-rays, the first thing he said was "She's missing some teeth."
It took a few seconds for that to process through my brain..."Stop, missing teeth, what do you mean?"
He then showed me on the x-rays that even though the canines are baby teeth, there's no adult teeth in the gums along with another set of teeth.
Me: "Is this good or bad?"
Him: " Well, it's...um....well...it just is."
So, we'll bring her back in a year to and maybe by then some will appear by then...
