Our Own Personal Tooth Fairy

Aug 12, 2014 by

I’ve written a few times about G$’s teeth.  It’s not a good situation.  He is now three and most of his teeth are yellowed from damaged/incorrectly formed enamel.

There is good news.  His teeth haven’t changed or worsened.  THANK YOU, JESUS!  We are still applying fluoride and special toothpaste but, overall, things are going as well as can be expected.  If nothing else, we can be grateful that he hasn’t needed baby caps (yet)!

Recently, he had his 3 year checkup.  They were finally able to take x-rays (God knows how, because I heard the epic fit from across the room!) and they are cautiously optimistic for his adult teeth.  They said the shape is good (If they were damaged like his baby teeth, the X-rays would show jagged, oddly shaped teeth.  Instead, they showed normal, smooth, wavy teeth.) although they are not quite as developed as the dentist would like.  And we found out he has an extra tooth in the roof of his mouth.  How weird is that?!  Either way, we are happy for ANY good news when it’s tooth-related! 🙂

The best news of all, however, doesn’t involve G$’s teeth at all.  Princess E’s first two teeth came through and they are SNOW WHITE!  WOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!  I don’t know if words can truly express our excitement.  Although we are much more comfortable dealing with the damaged teeth and all the issues that come with them, we always hoped any future children would be spared this issue.  And she has!  Hallelujah!

It’s like we have our own personal tooth fairy watching over both kids.
