Update on Brianna's Braces

The day after Brianna got her braces put on, she popped one of the brackets off one of her front teeth – the orthodontist said to just wait until her next appointment to have it put back on. (That appointment is this coming Monday.) Last night while we were at dinner I took a good look at her teeth again. It’d only been 8 days since her braces were put on.  Although the ortho said we would start seeing changes in her teeth alignment quite quickly, I had NO IDEA what a difference 8 days could make! I may not have noticed the change quite so much if the “popped” tooth wasn’t in the same place it started (since the bracket popped off and all). But, her front tooth that the bracket stayed on is almost completely straight! I just kept sitting there looking at it and making her smile so I could get a good view. I will post pictures after her next ortho appointment next week, but here’s a link to the pics the day she got her braces put on. (You can click on the individual images to view them larger.) Imagine the front left tooth (when you’re looking at her) aligned almost exactly at the angle it’s supposed to be (as opposed to the almost 45 degree angle it’s at in the pictures. I’m still amazed…
