J got spacers a part of his upper braces (with red elastics) put on today. Next week they will put the wires on.
And then we will start the routine of brushing at least 5 times a day, and having braces tightened/adjusted every 6 wks.
In about 6 months time, he has to have 4 teeth removed, and then the lower braces added.
And although he is smiling for the camera, he is VERY unhappy about the braces - oh well only 3 more yrs to go!
