Aaron had another excellent check up this morning. I couldn't talk him into red and green, he chose a more subtle gold and white O-rings for the holiday season.
This time of year elves may try to stick to their four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup, but that's not generally recommended for orthodontic patients. It helps to keep visual reminders like Preventing Problems With Braces™ on the bathroom mirror, where kids can be reminded daily of what foods to avoid.
It's not going to be easy. There will likely be cheating, but we can at least try to get them to "just say no".
