Shades on and ready to go.
Cleaning. All the teeth having brackets installed needed a good cleaning first.
Installing the first bracket.
I was a little concerned that his front two teeth had not fully descended but the orthodontist assured me that they were down far enough to install the bracket. Actually whether they were down further or not would not change the placement of these brackets. Sounded good enough to me.
Setting the glue.
Installing the wire. Unfortunately the wire only goes across his first 4 brackets. His molars were much to snug to install the last 2 wrap around brackets. He is left with a spacer until his next appointment where they will then be installed. The wire has been bothering him a bit so we have been putting wax on the end that is bent not as well as the other. Hmmm he didn't take his wax to school, I hope it doesn't bother him to much all day.
Green...that's the color bands Q-tip chose. His favorite color of course. He said he might go with blue next time.
Q-tip and his new braces. So cute and oh so big!
