Tyler Got Braces!

Here is the last shot of Tyler before braces. Let me tell you ladies, he was not happy at all about me pulling out the camera. But I had to take a couple of pictures.

This one is a little fuzzy. They use such a bright light when they put everything in.


This is the last photo he would open his mouth for. But there they are! In two months, his bottom braces go in and he gets the Herpse Appliance put in to move his lower jaw forward. He's the 3rd child in braces for us, so we're used to all of this :)

Laughing my butt off here... not cause of the braces but the fact that you are as bad as me... blog everything that moves... even braces... hahahahahahahahaha... that is one thing I never wanted... braces.
I am sure that you also are doing the happy dance that we don't have to do the I800A - whoo hoo... I ended up sleeping like a baby with no stress about how I am going to get all the papers together...

My kids haven't had to do the braces yet. I had them 3 times so maybe that will count? Think??

I can't imagine having 3 in braces! So far, only my son has needed them and it has not been fun. He breaks his brackets all of the time and then they(the office) yells at ME. So, now I just drop him off and don't even go in with him. lol! Let them yell at him, right?

Noemi said...

Joey has been out of braces since the summer. And he already broke his retainers!!!!!

We already know that little Luis will need braces too...

Ha. ha. I remember all too well wearing braces. Three times! Yep, you read right. I had them in my teens and then put back on at 20 and again in my late 20's.. AND then I finally had jaw surgery to correct the problem they had unsuccessfully tried to correct with braces. Fun...
