Today, Madeline and I headed to the dentist for our 6 month cleanings and check-ups. We both did well - no cavities! Madeline now has 20 teeth. The dentist, however, did tell me that braces are definitely in Madeline's future. He explained that baby teeth should be more like a "picket fence". This way, when the permanent teeth begin to grow in, there is room and one would then have a chance of not needing braces. My dear daughter is already crowded so as she starts to get her permanent teeth there won't be enough room for them to grow in straight. Sigh... If braces are in Madeline's future that means they are in the future of our wallet. It's time to start stuffing money in an orthodontic piggy bank.
