Keira's mouth procedure- Sept. 30th, 2008

Keira went to the dentist this morning for her little mouth procedure. She had to get a metal mouth piece attached to the roof of her mouth and her back two teeth. The purpose is to shift her jaw and teeth back where they're supposed to be  (she sucks her fingers; therefore, her teeth and jaw have shifted creating a cross bite and over bite), AND break her habit of sucking her teeth (there's not enough room in her mouth anymore for her fingers!). She did GREAT and I got her some ice cream a little bit ago (she was excited to have ice cream in the morning)! I didn't know what to expect and I was really nervous about it, but she's not in any pain! She's so brave.
