After waiting for nearly 18 months Alex finally got his braces fitted, they are doing to top ones only because when his adult teeth came through his fangs looked like they were so far back, in actual fact apparently they are in the right place and the rest were not. so he chose to have braces fitted. he has been going on about it for ages. the dentist agreed and although it’s not on the national health because it is cosmetic we decided we would pay to get them done, depending on the result we have the option to get his bottom teeth straightened as well although he isn’t as bothered about them. He had them fitted yesterday morning and has been in a lot of discomfort with the braces but apparently this is normal for the first few days. hopefully, it will settle down.
