Twas the Night Before Braces A True Braces Story

Posted on Wednesday, December 19, 2018 at 1:20 am

I lay in my bed tucked in with mom’s care.
But unable to sleep, I pondered my tooth wear.
My teeth are not straight and my bite makes a click.
I thought that braces might do the trick.
I sprang from my bed and ran to my desk.
I googled what treatment might be the best.
I found Shannon Orthodontics and opened his page.
With great reviews and free exams, I was amazed.
I made an appointment request right from his site,
Then headed to bed in hopes for a good night.
I was awakened the next morning by the sound of mom’s talk.
“Get dressed,” she said. You have an appointment at 8 o’clock.
Photos were taken and some x-rays as well.
We listened intently as Dr. Shannon had so much to tell.
“We have clear braces, and gold braces, and metal braces to choose from.
We even have star, flower, heart and diamond shaped braces that all yield the same outcome.”
“What can I eat?”As visions of sugarplums danced in my head.
“With the exception of hard foods and caramel, you can eat what you like”, is what he said.
“Just cut up large foods, like apples, and don’t fear.
You can even chew sugar-free gum here.”
I got braces the same day. It was easy and cool.
My mom liked that too because I didn’t have to miss additional school.
