Shark Teeth May 3, 2006

Posted by Joe in Uncategorized.

Benjamin was just days away from his 7th birthday and had yet to lose a single tooth. He’d been asking me for 2 years when he would lose one. About 6 weeks ago, he began complaining that his gums hurt. Lo and behold, his permanent teeth were coming in BEHIND his “baby teeth.” By Monday, the front two bottom permanent teeth were almost all the way up, yet the teeth in front had not come out yet. This interesting dental arrangement prompted a new nickname- “Shark Teeth.”

On Thursday , Benjamin was finally able to wiggle one enough that it was just barely hanging on. Daddy gave it a tug and out it came!

Hopefully the dentist will be right and they rest will come out on their own too. (Daddy had to have all his baby teeth pulled, so maybe we should find ourselves some really good dental insurance, just in case!)

Do you remember…I actually had SEVEN teeth pulled before I got braces? I thought that was just for kids whose parents didn’t take care of them or something. I also thought I would get retarded if I used the handicap stall in a public restroom.
