The reason he needed them in the first place was because he had an extra piece of tooth growing in the roof of his mouth that made his adult teeth stop growing properly.
He had that removed in hospital in 2005 and when they did come through they were all over the place. In 2008 they looked like this...
He then had to wait 4 years for all his baby teeth to fall out before he could get these in January 2012.
I have to say that the NHS orthodontics in Aberdeen have done a fantastic job and saved me lots of ££££££££. I hate to think how much it would have cost had we had to pay for it.
He's really pleased with the result and is now realising that all Mum's
Apologies to anyone who doesn't like looking at other peoples teeth (and that includes me).
