Cassidy got her braces off today, and is thrilled as she wanted them off before her 21st birthday on the 18th. She has been seeing the orthodontist since 2001 (I think we have bought him a car!). She had braces in elementary school, and ended up having surgery on her jaws in November. Her braces came off and she looks great. She still has to wear a retainer for up to a year, but she is so happy and can now eat everything again.
