Finally, we did go to the orthodontist and he checked Vidur’s teeth. He told us that since four teeth were removed before the dental braces were fixed, there was always a possiblity of the two misaligned teeth to regress. Not encouraging. So, what next, I thought. It turns out that Vidur must wear a removable clip constantly, except while eating, brushing teeth and singing. What A pain. Sounds like the braces were a better idea. Maybe they came off too soon, I thought secretly. We all know how hard it is to argue with a specialist. Quite like lodging a valid complaint only to make things worse.
Oh well. He got the clip fixed yesterday, and now we’re hoping and praying everything works out okay this time. As though this weren’t enough, he’s also got a bad cold, and school reopens tomorrow. Grrr. Who said adolescence was easy?
