Allison Gets Braces

Monday started out with some nervousness and apprehension. Allison was scheduled to get an expander in her mouth to correct her bite and make more room for permanent teeth. Braces across the top four teeth were going to follow about 6 months later. When we arrived, they decided that her permanent teeth had come down enough, so they wanted to put the braces on, too! It was definitely a lot for Allison to take in, and there were some tears. After about an hour, everything was in, and Allison did so great. She has the best attitude, and we all think it is really cool! The best part for her was getting to pick out the colors for the rubber bands on her braces. She definitively chose green, lime green, turquoise, and orange. I am so proud of her and think she looks adorable!
