The last time I took Jake to the dentist, he informed us that Jake has a baby tooth that hasn’t come out yet (and the adult tooth is formed and ready to come in). He was concerned that there wasn’t room for the adult tooth so he referred us to an orthodontist. We visited the orthodontist yesterday, and you guessed it–Jake needs braces. His teeth aren’t too bad, but there is some crowding and braces will fix that. If the baby tooth doesn’t come out on its own, it will need to be pulled, so Jake’s working on that. And, I’m working on the payment plan–braces are expensive!
