Back to the Ortho


These 2 got braces in June! Jo's teeth aren't too bad so her treatment will be quick and easy.  Spencer on the other hand has some work to be done.  This is round 2 for him.  He's missing his 2 front bottom teeth, so in a few months we have to decide whether to push all his teeth forward and do canine substitutions, or make spaces and do implants later on down the  road.  The ortho will need to consult with our  dentist and an oral surgeon to help determine the best route to go.  $10,000 later he'll have perfect teeth :/

Do you guys have a favored route as early as now? Pushing his teeth forward looks to be more invasive than dental implants, but the former looks more natural. Whatever you guys choose, always do so upon the advice of your doctors. Good luck to Spencer, and good job on Jo!
