My sweet teen made it 13yrs not needing braces as all his teeth were coming in perfect (so happy he didn't get my families teeth)... But these last two big ones tried coming through and put the kabosh on being braces free.
And so now he has them. Another new thing for 2016. I love watching him grow up and each new phase of development. Braces is just part of it and we made it as happy a day as possible.
Well I say it was happy!!! This is his version...
Better than getting a different gesture, I suppose..... Ah the teen years!! Love it!
