Braceface no more!

Here is Miranda at the biginning of her journey.  She got her braces on because of having a crossbite.  It was definitely weird to see such a pretty smile and watch it transform and wonder if we made a mistake as her teeth were moving.   It is easier and less painful to do this when her bones are still growing.   This next picture  is after she had her expander on for a while.  The gaps in her teeth were getting quite big!

Today she was very excited to be getting them off.  After about 10 months of braces she was really looking forward to this.
As a congratulations the Ortho gave her a bucket of microwave popcorn and a $10 gift card to Blockbuster.  She felt very spoiled.  She gets to go back in a week to pick up her retainer.  Woot!  I can't believe how fast things are going!  Oh and she has two loose teeth and lost two while her braces were on!
