Metal Mouth


Wolfman got braces yesterday!
And his mouth really hurts now-- back to pureed babyfoods, or at least mashed potatoes and soups for now.

Soon he'll be used to them, learn his new dental hygiene routine (threaded flossers, etc), and then.... he needs to get a tooth pulled to make room for the crowded teeth in his lower jaws.

After that all heals, they'll put in a titanium screw to anchor the moving around the remaining chompers...

Better stock up on the pain meds -- had to stop for some on the way to school this morning. It was a tough morning -- missed the bus, and as we're chasing it, he realized he forgot to take the Ibuprofen with his oatmeal... Poor kiddo!

God I remember those days all too well. The soreness is never really as bad as those first few days.
That's not a picture of HIM is it?!?!? If so, you are EVIL!!!

Prof had to pick him up from school today, as he was just in too much pain...
I may be evil, but that's not his mouth -- the picture is from the web!
