Crooked Smile, Part 2
“I’ve wanted this for so long and now I finally have it!”
Oh yes, we can capitalize on that strange fascination that children have with orthodontia…
Grace did great, listened, followed directions and got her headgear “installed” yesterday. It was more fun than she was even expecting. She didn’t even know she was going to get to choose the color PINK for her headgear. She even got to choose pink and purple containers of wax and a pink case.
What fun! I remember being similarly excited, although not nearly so at the wizened old age of maybe 10.
I do think orthodontia is a bit more gentle now than it used to be. When I told the orthodontist what appliances I had as a child he said they basically figured out that those were useless…That’s nice to know…Although I still have straight teeth so they couldn’t have been too useless!
