One glance at this kids teeth and you realize she's an orthodontic nightmare.
We love her still.
She's about to have a frenectomy. She's scared, nervous, and has a lot of questions. A lot.
A frenectomy is the removal of the frenulum, a small fold of tissue that prevents
body parts or organs from moving too far.
In this case, the surgeon will remove the a section of tissue,
the frenulum, that is attached to the gingival tissue between her front two teeth.
It's causing a gap in her front teeth, among other problems.
The doc said she may only eat cold soft foods for 48 hours post op.
So, with surgery soon, there will likely be tears, and definitely stitches, and a lot of ice cream.
Hang in there kiddo! Haven't we told you to keep a stiff upper lip?
