As for Gabbie, she had her teeth, minus the missing 2 on the bottom, cleaned today. The no cavity report eases my mind for the time being, although the xrays frighten me. There does not appear to be very much room for those new adult teeth to come through. The top two look to be sitting crookedly as well. The dentist also says she has a cross bite, which will need to be fixed.
When I was 8, I had braces on just my front two teeth, followed by braces on my front four teeth. Once my teeth were next to each other again, there was the matter of my overbite. I then had braces again on my entire mouth from 7th-9th grade. (I got my braces removed the day after I got over the chicken pox at the age of 14). I don't wish this on my children!
Gabbie, however, says that if she has to get "bracelets," she will get Rebecca (the American Girl doll) "bracelets" as well. And all will be happy in the land of Gabbie.
