Autumn was so excited tonight, b/c it's the last night we have to turn her expander. Each night for 16 nights, we have turned it 1/4 of a turn.
This is what the "key" looks like. It actually has been really easy to do.
Each 4 turns equals 1 mm, so her top pallet has been expanded by 4 mm. She's got a good sized gap in her front teeth, which we were told would happen. It's making room for her other teeth and that gap will be fixed with braces. Autumn's been such a trooper through the whole thing! Before I know it, she'll have an even more gorgeous smile!
