Today is the day our oldest has been dreaming of for the past two years. The day his braces come off.
It is an all day affair since the removal appointment is at 8:40 am, an hour away from the grandparents’ house. Then there is an additional 4:10 pm appointment to fit the retainer. So that means spending the day at the library working and educating to kill time.
He has 2 permanent retainers and nighttime removable retainers and, except for ice and jawbreakers, no more food restrictions. He’s requested a caramel apple :)
I think this smile has been worth the wait!
