We all do what it takes.
In the end we find away.
Nice to have a few trees around when you need then and you can make some heat out of the left over limbs. win win.

I'm about 25 easy miles from the dental doc, so no real issue. It's our main shopping area too.
Bhts......retainer?.......Once they are aligned good, I'll just use JB Weld on the back side of her teeth! LOL


Dan- Now you are talking. With your fabrication skills and the support of all your friends here at GT Talk, I would have thought you would have skipped the Dr. alltogether.

Here is a picture of Hydrive with the set I made for him:tombraces.jpg



Here is the after picture. I am not sure why he is called an old goat??oldgoatbraces.jpg


It wasn't easy getting him to cut that hair, but I think it is a definite improvement. Anyone else agree?

I was joking with the doc about doing it myself. He said once he got the braces installed, he'd leave the wires sticking out far enough so I could tighten them myself with a pair of pliers. Should have seen the look on my daughter's face! He's a very personable guy, and so glad he is. I hate dealing with stuffed shirts.

Regular dentist for her today. $317 today, and another approximate $450 to go. Gonna get her all fixed up, and I'm sure she'll be glad in the long run. She was in a kind of bad mood as we came home from the dentist a few minutes ago, but then she went to spit & just kind of blew it all over & ran down her chin. Made her laugh! Then she went to the mirror & smiled, and that made her laugh again as her face just wouldn't respond to a smile.:rolling:

Daniel
I had both kids done at the same time. My son needed dental surgery before his were able to be applied. The dentist was great, although I wondered why he offered free coffee, tea, orange juice and pastries etc. I found out when it was about 4 thousand apiece about 8 years ago. They were fine until the retainer. One was good about it, the other was not. Both came out fine and I guess that is the reward.

One note. My dentist gave me a percentage off if I paid in full up front. It was not negotiable, but that is the route I went. It saved me several hundred off his monthly plan. See if you can get a deal. Glad the logging paid for it.

I thought the horns that showed up from time to time was the Devil showing himself, here the whole time he was just "Kid" ing around.

Dan,
Braces maybe a pinch on the finances, but later in life, when she smiles, you'll remember today.

Wish I hadn't seen this thread today. My oldest needs them too, and we ain't figured out how we're gonna do it for her yet. We've got a little time yet I think, but not much. :(

Good luck to all of you with kids and braces! Our daughter went through some oral surgery and then spacers, braces, and retainers 12 years ago. As much of a hassel as you are going through now the end result is worth it!
