NAM Appt. #6

NAM Appt. #6

Emily's appointment went very well today. Dr. Grayson (the orthodontist who does her adjustments) said she her premaxilla (the segment of her gums that juts out just under her nose where her first four teeth will come in) is moving into place. The columella is already stretching and because her premaxilla has moved so much we can ease up on the tension of her cheek tapes. Jim (Emily's papa and my husband) came up with a novel way to tape up Emily's prolabium (that's the tape just beneath her nose that's meant to stretch her columella). Dr. Grayson said it was cool and very simple. He thinks if it works that they will start showing other parents the technique!!
