"Mothers, Daughters, Braces" – the orthodontic epic of our times.
Alexis is one of the millions of kids who needs braces – but Alexis is dead set against getting them. Most of the time, her mother Rachel likes how her daughter takes after her, but this is one time when she doesn’t. Rachel refused to get braces when she was Alexis’s age, so how can she convince her daughter to do what is necessary now?
Having braces seems so simple, but it can be so difficult. In facing orthodontic adversity together, Alexis and her mother chart their own special course – but it’s a story that everyone who has had braces, or has a loved one going through orthodontic treatment can relate to. From the discomfort and embarrassment of having them to the gratifying relief of the perfect, straight teeth at the end of the long road – and all the mixed feelings in between! – "Mothers, Daughters, Braces" candidly conveys the full range of experiences and emotions every orthodontic patient faces.
