A few days ago, Zaque became the fourth member of our family to get braces. He certainly wasn’t very excited about it, but recognized that something has to be done about (as he calls it) his “snaggletooth”. Like Laralee, he’s missing the lateral teeth that are on either side of the top front incisors. Instead, he has canines in those spots. By dragging his teeth around a bit, the orthodontist thinks he can organize everything nicely.

Here’s my boy before heading off for the procedure:

And here he is afterward, making me wonder if he caught a whiff of nitrous oxide or something…

Well, we’re off on a two-year journey now!
