Palate expander

Last week we drove down to Georgetown to go to the dentist. My dear friend Megan, who I've known and gone to school with since 3rd grade, including 4 years of college, is married to a pediatric dentist, Travis, who she met in college. Biology class to be exact! He and his friend Kenny, another SFA alumni, have a practice in Georgetown.

Anywho! Presley has a little crossbite and needs a palate expander to correct it so there's no problems later in life with her jaw.

She did great throughout the cleaning, X-rays, and fitting/mold. And she didn't have any cavities. I was shocked!!! We have a fully stocked candy bowl at all times. We ain't scared to eat a little candy around these parts!

So here's my brave little girl!

Trav and his staff did great and we look forward to going back to get the expander placed. I'm a little nervous about her being sore and upset with this thing in her mouth. But we'll get through it! She picked her spacers out after a few days. I hope they did their job!
