orthodontia update…

My alarm sounded this morning, I quickly turned it off and jumped up out of my warm blanket cocoon. I slipped on socks and made my way quietly downstairs, wondering why I pounced up so quickly. The recycling gets picked up on Mondays, but there was something else… as I measured coffee and poured water, I remembered… a visit to the orthodontist for The Historian.

She has been wearing the Invisalign braces for just over 6 weeks now, and had an appoint this morning to check the fit and her compliance. I have to tell you, my foxling ROCKS !!!!! She has to take them out to eat, then brush carefully before putting them back in. She has been so careful and responsible, we knew she was going to do well; but she has exceeded our expectations thus far. I am happy to report she got kudos from everyone in the office. =) This system tends to move the teeth quickly at first, with time built into the treatment for maintenance. I hope these photos do not gross you out, but I wanted to show what they are like. The trays on top in the pictures are the old ones, with the new set on the bottom. I do not know if you can tell from the trays, but there is a big change so far, even this early in the game. She is progressing so well, she does not have to go back until April ! She has no issues, everything is moving right along, and I am so glad we went with the Invisalign and her orthodontist. BTW, how cute is that carry-case she picked out ?! That sums her up; swirly, cool and a bit different. =) Score one for the kid who brushes after every meal !
