My 14-year-old has a beautiful smile. They say a good smile will get you far in life. We have done everything possible to make this true.
He's had quite a bit going on with that mouth recently. Over Thanksgiving, he had his wisdom teeth out. It was a pretty quick procedure and fairly humorous afterward when he kept saying, "This is awesome!" He asked to keep his teeth and they are freakin' huge! (And just a bit gross.)
Last week, he got his braces off. Being diligent about using his rubber bands paid off. What's funny is the orthodontist gave him a bottle of candy afterward. All the kind he's done without for a year and a half. Especially Laffy Taffy.
So he has a beautiful smile now - Let's hope all is good when he goes for his dental checkup over the holiday break.
