Family trip to the dentist...

This week was a big one in regards to the dental hygeine of the W-clan. The kids all had cleanings, checks for cavities and flouride treatments.

Beetle in the chair...

Oh... I guess Miracle didn't actually go to the dentist...she clearly needs one.



WaHoo to the clan making the "No Cavities" board.

B-boy... had a particularly eventful time in his mouth as he also saw the orthodontist the same day. He was molded for his "appliance" that is due to arrive in three weeks. What is this appliance you ask? It's called a Frankel and if I had to explain it... I would call it a BEASTLY retainer for both the top and bottom teeth that is connected. He needs to log 23 hours a day in it for 15 months or so. (Uh Huh... sure.) Pray for us now! :0)

Here's a picture of the beast..

Josh had to wear something like this last summer. I chose to have his glued into his mouth and he ended up wearing it only 4 months instead of 6 to 8.

He now has on his braces, but once he is done, Caleb will get his turn with a metal mouth

Yeah for no cavities! Poor B-boy. That looks like no fun for far too long!

Oh boy! Retainers are no fun, and that one takes the cake!!!

Yeah on no cavities, but good grief that Franklin is beastly looking!

Shelly said...

Great job with no cavities. I feel sorry for B-Boy. That would not be fun having to wear something like that. I like the music that plays on your blog

Ok, that looks like it was formed in the bowels of hell. So what in the world are you going to do to keep that medeival contraption in his poor little mouth?!?
