I had the medieval version of this contraption when I was young. I feel for your guy!


Me too. That was probably the worst one to have installed. Mine felt like I had a wad of gum stuck to the roof of my mouth and a key was inserted that had to be turned morning and night to widen the palate. I also didn't have any other appliance that changed my face so dramatically.


The first couple days are rough but eating (and talking) gets easier as they get used to the appliance. He should be able to eat most things (not the no nos like popcorn, hard candy etc. of course). Soups and rice pudding and oatmeal go down easy during those first tough days. Perhaps his sisters will take pity on him and make him some tapioca...(or nice soft brownies!) Great opportunity for mortification, those braces! (his mouth and your wallet, lol)
