that Quinlan needs braces? Like, yesterday? Not only braces, but first an appliance to widen his upper bite, followed by a trip to the oral surgeon who will cut a flap in the roof his mouth and attach a wire to the lost incisor that is coming in sideways and behind all of the other teeth, which the orthodontist will then spend several months dragging down into place by said wire, like an ornery salmon on a fisherman's line? After which, upper braces will be applied, and then lower braces?
And did I mention that Quin has sensory issues, and this is likely to be torturous, and also take 3 years to complete?
And did I mention that it's going to cost $6,000 uninsured dollars?
