At last! A big day today, dear Reader, well for Miss C anyway as she has had her braces removed!
Aged eleven when we first went to visit the orthodontist I was under the impression that it would be an eighteen month process for Miss C to have her teeth fixed and now almost three years later and worringly into her GCSE we were still having appointments and brace adjustments. Miss C started off with a retainer then was fitted with the metal train track braces we all know.
But today at last the orthodontist cut them off and we thought we were free of the appointments and me springing Miss C from school not that I think for one second that Miss C minded being sprung! So the braces were gone. So Miss C showed us her new beautiful smile and I have to say that her orthodontist has done a really good job. Her teeth look great!
So we were all excited thinking that Christmas had come early for Miss C and no more long waits in the busy waiting room. This private practise is always busy. When the orthodontist said that he was going to take moulds of Miss C teeth so she could come back and have another retainer fitted!
Why I do not know. How long...I do not know!
