Braces no more!

Emma got her braces and palate expander taken off today. She's had the palate expander for about 8 months and braces for just three months. But the orthodondist says we have to let more of her permanent teeth come in and then decide if any other orthodontia is necessary. In the meantime, she'll have to wear a retainer at night, which should be great fun for her.

I have to say, her front teeth look great...very straight and no big gap or anything (as you can see in this photo of her serenading her toothbrush!

Yay Emma! Has it been 8 months?? I'm sure it felt like it to you all...but it seems like a couple months ago I read about it! LOL

Jade has at least 11 months to go, maybe more...no braces though ;0) and she will be in a retainer too.

Emma's teeth look awesome, I can see changes in Jade's already!
