i have a whack load of labels that I have to reset and all i want to do is use a for statement but i don't know how to recognize my labels
this is what I have so far


the label.text contains information such as  18 19 20 21 b or (18) (19) 20 (21)
all my labels are named T18  T19 T20 T21 etc

the button will select  and change the numbers from 18 to (18) 19 to (19) etc.




  Private Sub btnRemoveAll_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnRemoveAll.Click


       Dim toothNumber As Integer = 11

        Dim index2 As Integer = 1
        Dim size As Integer = 8
        Dim textboxName As String

        Dim label As Label
   
            For index2 = 1 To size Step 1
'#### the funtion I am trying to represent should be textBoxName = "T18.Text"
                textboxName = "T" & toothNumber.ToString & ".Text"

            '######### then I want to call my function T18.Text = checkAllTeeth(T18.Text)

               textBoxName = checkAllTeeth(TextBoxName)

            Next
          End Sub

    Private Function checkAllTeeth(ByVal textSize As String) As String

        If textSize.Length = 2 Then
            Return "(" & textSize & ")"
        Else
            Return textSize
        End If


    End Function
