Brace Face! Tinsel Teeth! NOT!

A new adventure for the Kamberger family began this week as Caitlin got her braces! As you can see from the pics above, there is no metal involved. Our dentist hooked her up with a new product called "Invisalign" which she will wear 24 hours a day, except when eating/brushing/flossing. Every three weeks or so a new set of Invisalign molds will be utilized. After about a year, her correction will be complete!

Caitlin was very excited to get these started. She was not expecting the "uncomfortable" feeling in her mouth and on her tongue from rubbing against the mold, but we've told her it's much better than having braces!

Grace will also be getting the Invisalign, but not until next year at the earliest. She will need to have four teeth extracted this year to give her mouth a little more room, then will have the molds done after things stabilize.

After two rounds of braces, adding up to about seven years of tinsel teeth, I have to say that this just doesn't seem fair. :)
