Brace Face

Brace face, tinsel teeth, metal mouth, railroad tracks, jaws, zipper lips, magnet mouth, cheese grater, fence face, and tin grin are just a few of Jacob's new names.

Braces don't do this to your face, but what does? Any guesses?

That's our Jacob! For a regular kid, I'd go with a fan, but for Jake, I'm guessing it's got to be a power tool....air compressor?

Ok, I see braces on straight teeth. What's up? And surely you know how I feel about leaf blowers. Ugh. lol

The braces are holding his teeth in place while we wait for his baby molars to fall out. Otherwise we would be dealing with some seriously bucked teeth. Our orthodontist does functional orthodontics which is far less invasive than your typical ortho. He believes you need all the teeth God gave you and cares more about the health of the mouth than the perfect smile. Removing teeth to get straight teeth often leads to tmj, headaches, etc.

I have to say I agree with Jody on the air compressor idea and Robert threw out leaf blower without reading any of the other comments! I love these photos though!
