Nicholas gets braces!!




Today was the day!! We had a no school day today for a teacher workday so I scheduled Nicholas to get his braces put on this morning. It took under an hour and 1/2. I took some before and after photos. He also got his expander put in the roof of his mouth and so far I think that's worse than the braces.

This looks PAINFUL!!! Hows he feeling? Be sure to let us know if he ever gets his hair cut. Man, do I sound OLD?!?!?

wow that spacer thing looks like a torture divice! Does it stay in all the time? It looks like it's piercing into the roof of his mouth! Is it?? I'm facinated by that.

he looks really good with braces, not all kids do, but he does, course he's a great looking guy anyhow. and his hair is great, don't let Suzi tell you anything! haha

So... no open mouth tilt head photos of Emily's fixed retainer? lol

That expander looks like it hurts. I remember the days of braces and stuff. Tell Nicholas it will all be worth it in the end. The girls will love his beautiful teeth!

What a trooper! I only had braces for 6 months- only because my mouth was to small! Thumb sucker!

Looks like this would be pretty sore to me...the poor kid. Give him a squeeze for me.
