In a while my son and I will be visiting the dentist; nope, nothing drastic like a tooth extraction, but only a check-up with his expansion plates (they placed it last weekend). It's been a week now since they placed it, and I must admit there were times when my son felt a bit uncomfortable (specially after I 'tightened' after four days). But he's ok now. :)
Still, I believe that a check-up is important, so in about two hours we'll be going out!
