My lil guy has a crooked bite and we go see orthodontist today. He is sooo nervous. I feel bad for him. Wondering what ortho will say about his mouth. Thinking retainer? With his sensory issues, how in the world do I get him to wear one? Also going to talk about a device called a fence to stop thumb-sucking. It is ruining his teeth. Going to be tough with that because thumb is his #1 self-soother. Don't know how we are going to do that one. Any mommies had these issues and how did you do it? Wish my lil guy luck...

How did it go?

My son has braces and they are using rubber bands to correct his bite.

Dd had to wear a retainer to widen her mouth. We chose to have it cemented into her mouth instead of having a removable one.

Mine has to go and it's worrying me to death! I can't see him doing well with it but there are success stories in here! I asked a while ago about our kids with braces and the response was really positive!
