Dental Bridges

This is a beautiful pedestrian bridge in the United Kingdom.
Reminds me of a beautiful smile.
Straight, pearly whites.
Evenly spaced.
More dental work for this cute boy.
This is our bridge in Proctorville, OH.
It reminds me of someone with braces on and lots of rubber bands!

Cooper is not wearing rubber bands. Yet.
He got his lower palette expander, which is removable for brushing.
We turn it every five days to widen.

This is the George Washington Bridge we crossed a few weeks ago.
Reminds me of Cooper's palette.
Very narrow!

This is the upper palette expander, not removable.
Yes, food gets up on top.
Their suggestion was to gargle with salt water.
Really?
We'll be trying the water pik.

SICK! A little too early in the morning to be looking at and reading about stuck food and salt gargles. Fun times ahead Amy Jo. :)

What a smile :) We'll see it soon first hand.

Oh the memories. Looks like Mitch's mouth for the last 4 years. He is excited that he only has about 18 months left.
