Vivianne had a very lucky St. Patrick's Day...she ended up getting her bottom braces off! Yay! The orthodontist glued in a retainer behind her 4 permanent bottom teeth, so that they stay put. He put new brackets on the top two teeth (that sit on either side of her two front teeth). Those teeth are coming in quickly and hopefully, she will have only a couple of months left for everything to get straightened out on top. Her teeth already look amazing and she is so happy! She can hardly wait until the braces come off completely.
There is still a chance she will need braces (again) when all of her permanent teeth come in...but in that event, the amount of time that the braces will need to be on will most likely be shortened, probably in 1/2.
