I finally took the plunge and took Tim to an orthodontist because I was concerned about his overbite (notice the teeth resting on his lip!). In May he had some x-rays, measurements, molds etc. and it was determined that he would need braces. He has some teeth not growing in straight and those have braces and he also needs to wear head gear to help align his jaw. On Thursday he went in and had his braces put on. He'll need to wear them about two years.
He chose some lovely colors, red green blue and silver. You can't tell in the picture (even the colored picture doesn't show the colors well.) Of course Dad had to take him to Toys R Us to buy a Star Wars clone.
Let's hope all of this works.
