As the title indicates, Lucy got her first set of dental xrays yesterday. She was too young for xrays when we first started all of her orthodontic treatment so we don't have a true baseline for where her jaw was but at least we do have those first pictures of her underbite to go from.
These were taken in December 2012. The picture on the left is her upper palate and teeth. You can see her fistula in the top left corner. That will eventually be surgically repaired with a bone graft, probably next summer. We meet with her surgeon in June to discuss the timeline. The picture on the right is her lower jaw.
This next photo shows the placement of her adult teeth that will be coming in. These are outlined in pen to distinguish them from her baby teeth. The "?" indicates the fistula and also shows that there are no teeth coming in. To the right of the ? is a tooth that is coming in sideways. To the left of the ? you will see two teeth on top of each other and another, smaller one to the left being squished by yet another 2 teeth even further left. She has a similar problem on the far upper right.
Lucy was a trooper as usual and looked at the whole thing as another grand adventure.
