Trina, both my girls have gone down the "alternative" orthodontic route. Katherine had to have an expander plate for about 9 months to reshape her face. She's about to turn 15 and 2 days after her birthday will have finished her treatment. It was the best thing we did as the traditional ones didn't even want to start her until now. She's almost all done and has friends who are just starting. I know where I'd rather be as a teenager. Good luck to Sarah.


YAH that they can now do things early rather then straight to braces....hope she gets used to them very soon!!!

and well done on the rugby awards boys!!!


primary school days are fun and the kids really enjoy you being there, sadly as they enter high school you hardly ever see them at school as they become young adults! good photos Trina!

I hope that Sarah has gotten used to her plates, it really doesn't take long and they forget they have them in. We went the early route with Marnie (she started at 7) and she is now 15 and has the most perfect smile. We knew at 3 that she would need early work and I was not going to go down the track like my sister and I did and have 8 and 10 teeth removed! A friend of ours dd who is also 15 waited and she has just had her jaw broken! Early is not for everyone but if they need the room, it is such a good way to go. We both have problems with our jaws as a result of having it done this way.

I'm sure you will never regret going down this path and Sarah will thank you later on :)
