Grinding MY teeth
Today I take BD10 to the orthodontist, referred by our regular dentist. Regular dentist has already told me 2 yrs ago, BD10 will probably need braces. Ortho tells me BD needs braces. OK. I get home and call Biodad and give him the news. He gets mad and says that it's ridiculous and that I should wait til BD10 is about 13 or 14. He thinks I should get a 2nd opinion. He says he will not support my decision to put BD10 in braces. I tell him well regardless if you support it or not you are still responsible for 50% if I choose to put BD10 in braces. That pisses him off even more. He says don't send me a bill. He says BD10 is too young to have braces and she's not responsible enough. i tell him, Ortho explained to me and BD10 about the importance of hygene and so forth and I felt very comfortable with his expertise. I try to stay calm and explain to Biodad that it is easier to correct her teeth now than to wait til it's convenient for him. I told him I am going to do what's best for BD10 and I don't care what he has to say. BD10 has a hygene check in 8 weeks to determine if she can take better care of her teeth. Ortho told me and BD10 if she doesn't improve he will not put braces on. I explained all this to Biodad. He still was adamant about waiting and she's not responsible, blah, blah, blah. Do any of you think 10 is too young for braces? I'm really pissed that Biodad acted that way.
