This first photo of Amber was taken just before we left Thursday morning for her orthodontist appointment. As you can see from this picture, she has a full set of braces on her top teeth but not her bottom ones yet......


.....that's what this morning's appointment is for....the full set of bottoms. I did give her ibuprofen before we left the house and I'm thinking it was a pretty good thing to do and was told by the gals in the office there to 'piggy-back' the ibuprofen every 3 - 3 ½ hours for greatest pain control and comfort for her. I tried to get a picture of her after she had her full set of bottom ones on too, but it was too painful and she had nothing to smile about. It is now Saturday and she is finally able and WILLING to smile....she has something to smile about.....no need to take anymore ibuprofen! Hooray.....so without any further ado, here is Miss Amber smiling once again:
Okay, the smile is not an actual smile....it is more of a forced smile so you all can see the braces on her bottom teeth!

I have always wanted braces. Glad Amber is getting hers while she is young. Because I'm an adult, my dental insurance will not cover braces at all not even partially.

I had my first dental appointment when I was 17. I paid for it out of my pocket with the money I was earning from a part-time job. I had always wanted to have my teeth cleaned and examined. Luckily, I did not have one cavity!

Glad Amber has been with you this weekend! She'll have beautifully straight teeth. It will be worth it.
