New Headgear (finally) for Bookwyrm’s Braces

braces and headgearOur Bookwyrm went to the orthodontist today for an update and to get her beautiful headgear.

Braces haven’t changed too much in the 30 years or so since my step-sister wore some, but the headgear sure looks much simpler.

Bookwyrm has to wear this contraption for at least 14 hours a day.  Luckily she’s homeschooled so she has time.  She gets to take it off to eat, and when she goes outside.  I’ll let her take it off when friends come over too.
