The kids had their 6mo dental cleaning today. I found out what I have been expecting to hear for a while….Aidan needs braces. Apparently there are 2 phases, and phase 1 for some children starts before all the permanent teeth are in. I am guessing since Aidan’s teeth look like the ones in the picture below, phase 1 is needed:
Phase 1 will be approximately one year, then we wait until all of his permanent teeth are in to see if phase 2 is needed.
Aidan is super excited about the idea of braces. Hoping that continues once we start the process next month 🙂
