Well, kid #2 has just as many mouth problems as kid #1; actually they are even worse. Poor Sara Rosie's mouth is just too small. Fortunately or unfortunately, we have regular dental appointments and listen to our dentist's recommendations. So, she had to get braces at 7 years old. By putting in an palate/mouth expander now along with braces, we should be able to avoid really expensive and painful surgery later. We're all pretty sure this is a good thing.
