DS got braces back in March. Everything was going fine (he was dealing ok with brackets and wires) until the last visit when they put in spacers. He totally freaked, tried to pull them out and had a MELT DOWN. We haven't had another appointment since then until today. Today he was freaking out before we even left the house. At the appointment he refused to sit in the chair or open his mouth so the appointment got rescheduled. I have no idea what to do other than try and get a script for an anti-anxiety like xanax just to use at ortho appointments. The only other meds he is on is vayarin for ADHD. The orthodontist wasn't very understanding last time so I have left a message for his manager as well.
