I’m still trying to get used to this metal-free smile. We tried to return to the same orthodontist we originally had, but she had retired. Her replacement just could not grasp the magnitude of my joy when I saw his latest dental photos showing fairly straight teeth coming in. There was one adult tooth on the bottom right that had been nearly perpendicular to its proper direction, and everyone was sure he was going to lose it.
You can read all about the cyst that caused us so much grief here.
God is good.
And now all I seem to hear these days is, “Mom, can I have some gum?”
