Not For The Squeamish

Gerro's orthodontic work has begun.
At Kijabe Mission Hospital. About 90 minutes from Nairobi.
Gerro will be a regular visitor over the next 2-3 years.
This is what the dentist gets to see. Lucky him!
That's an expander inside Gerro's mouth.
Pushing his teeth apart. To correct his slight cross bite.
I had to crank it further apart, twice a day, for a week or so.
Once the expander was at full stretch, Gerro's braces were fitted.
Here he is, exposing his teeth & braces for the dentist to take photos.
Not for the squeamish!
