Now that Nathan's bite is fixed, the orthodontist wants to make sure the rest of his teeth come in straight. This past week, they put braces on just his front 2 teeth. They will push his teeth together. Then, when his 2 lateral teeth want to come in, they will have enough room to slide right in. The hopes are that if there is enough space he won't need major braces on all his teeth when he's a teenager. So far, he said they hurt a little the first day and don't hurt a bit now! So much easier than that expander and headgear he had to wear for 6 months!
Here is the before picture of his teeth.
He needed a new glasses prescription, and this time, we got him the kind that turns dark outside.
