My son's had his expansion plate for a year now, and it has become sort of a nuisance for him (and for us). I wonder if he'll be needing a Plano cosmetic dentist soon! Just joking, really, since just look at the distance! I think we have to be more patient since his teeth aren't coming out yet. Well, his baby teeth did grow only when he was a year old, so we expected his other teeth to be coming out a little later than most kids.
Patience can be hard for most of us, though ... :)
