Today was the long awaited day that David got his braces off.
(I can’t believe how much this boy has grown up during the process! The photo below was taken in August of 08 just after he began the initial phase of wearing a “functional appliance”. He was 10 years old!)
Here he goes out the door today. One last look!
Our orthodontist’s office is so fun to go to. The staff is so friendly and great! David came home with arms full of celebratory goodies. Just look at that smile. No longer is he afraid to hide it!
Now, here’s to living life with retainers . . . and learning to talk normally with them!
