    Holy Crap !! I'm here at the orthodontist with my 9 year old daughter. She has molars coming in sideways and some generally crooked teeth. They want to put mouth expanders in and patial braces. $3500 bucks. This should last for 1.5 years. Then she will probably need regular braces when she's 13-14. I did not budget for this and will have to reproject next years budget to pay for it. Unless one of you good souls would want to pay. I'll put your company name on my forhead.

    This sucks.

    9 to 14 is NOT 1 years.

    If your math is that bad you might find you really can afford it. Have your 9 yr old [who will be 14 in 5 years] check your subtraction.

    No silly. The expanders and patial braces are phase 1. She'll get all that off around 11 years old. Then there will be a gap of a couple/few years and then she will more than likely need conventional braces. Phase 1 is $3500.

    Well if phase 2 isn't for 5 years...... your only talking $60.00 per month. Thats like a tank of gas in that Camaro. Cut out "cruzing" on Friday nights and ya got er licked.
