TA DA! Morgan's braces! Yes, my 8 year old has braces - WOW! We went in for a consultation last week and the orthodontist suggested Phase I treatment. The way her teeth are aligned, her top and bottom teeth are rubbing together and could cause some wear on the teeth. She will be in the braces for 4-6 months and then a retainer until all her permanent teeth are in which could be 2-3 years. Then we will move to Phase II treatment. Morgan has been very excited and anxious about getting her braces. She was a trooper yesterday throughout her appointment and hasn't complained about soreness or pain at all. I think she was a little bummed when she found out all the foods she couldn't eat, like popcorn, chips/salsa - but it is only for a short period of time. The braces just make her look so much older :o( Anyone who has had braces have any advice or tips for my girl?
