Over a year ago / we discovered that one of my son's milk teeth had not fallen out / the permanent tooth was growing backwards / and hadn't pushed it out. / This led to surgery and orthodontics. / My son was miserable when he realized that his adolescence would begin with braces / and all that it involves. / Once a month we go with him to the orthodontist / Dr. Rosemblaum / whose loveliness sweetens the ordeal a bit. /
