I did take Todd to the dentist Monday. A few weeks after whatever accident he had to damage the tooth...don't worry I was reprimanded by the dentist. In my defense, Todd did not complain about the tooth hurting until this past weekend and there was no outer trauma to his mouth to give me a head's up.
His tooth is actually fine...besides being a nasty gray color. He was very good for the dentist. My kids are freaks. They LOVE going to the dentist. Anyway. He got an x-ray of his tooth and the nerve is still alive and there is no fracture to the tooth. The dentist did say we (and Todd) need to be careful with the tooth so as not to do anymore damage to it. The dentist said given time the tooth will heal and could even go back to being white. The things you learn. I would much prefer his tooth to go back to white because those suckers do not get loose and fall out until around 7 years of age. 3 more years of all his pictures with a gray front tooth? I hope not.
Of course being the boy he is I'm sure he will do something to retraumatize that poor tooth and it will come out sooner rather than later.
