I don't think I mentioned it on here but I took Coco to the Dentist for a checkup on Monday of this week. She has had her braces and quad helix on for 1 year and it was time to take out the quad and get a mold for a retainer. She freaked out! She wouldn't open her mouth, screamed if they tried to touch her mouth. I even had to call her Daddy to come help me with her. After a hour and a half we finally got it done. I felt like we had been through a war or something and I was so upset with her because this is just not like her. It was a combination of not enough sleep the night before, a lose tooth that she was afraid they were going to touch, being 9 yrs old with hormones going up and down .
Luckily the staff at Dr. Rhodes offices are God sent. Miss Crystal was able to get the retainer done locally and called us to come in today for the removal of her braces and fit for the retainer. Coco and I had some long talks the last 2 days on what was going to happen when she went back. She assured me that she would comply with the dentist and if she did, we would go do something fun afterwards.
This is Coco before with her braces
After without braces. She is so excited about her new smile
