Monday morning I had a DRs appointment and he had one with the orthodontist 45 minutes apart....no way to make them both at the same time so thankfully Papaw took him! I was very surprised when he came home with BRACES!!?? The way they explained it to me was 3 appointments one week apart..1st appointment they wedge spacers between his teeth to make it easy for them to slide the metal anchor bands on, (we did that), 2nd appointment they put the four anchor bands on the back teeth (what I thought he was going in for), and 3rd appointment they band the rest and wire them all together so I was shocked when he came home with braces!! Felt bad that I wasn't there for him.
