Noah's retainer

Ever since the dentist recommended braces for Noah a few years ago he has been ultra concerned about his teeth. We put them off last year and reevaluated this year. The orthodontist recommended a retainer for two or three years before braces need to go on. He was super excited, as you can see. 

Making a mold of his teeth back in June.

Several weeks later the retainer was ready.  

Too much mouth? I don't care. I want to remember everything! The purpose of the retainer is to hold the space in between his teeth so that when they fall out they can still utilize the area instead of having it filled by the bigger teeth coming in.
