Heather began the process of getting her braces. We had the final consult with the orthodontist yesterday, and she had her spacers put in. She has been in a lot of pain. I've second-guessed the wisdom of starting this now. She is scheduled for braces on Tuesday, the day before school. I'm not sure pain on her first day of school is going to be very helpful when she's trying to concentrate on a new school, a new school schedule, p.e., a locker combination and teacher expectations. If I'd had any idea that she would be this uncomfortable, I would have pushed for starting this process a week or two sooner.
Is there ever a good time to start braces?? Poor girl.
