Tommy Chipped a Tooth
Tommy fell on the ceramic tile floor in the kitchen while I was at work today. Niki called me and I immediately made an appointment with the dentist for that afternoon. I asked her to give him ibuprofen for any pain and let him have some applesauce for lunch in case is was bothering him. He took a good nap before I took him to the dentist and he was what the dentist said was his best patient that day. And he went to our dentist, not a pediatric dentist so that was a big feat for him. He shook the dentist's hand, took a ride on the dentist chair, laid back in the chair and got everything checked out. The dentist doesn't think there's much to be done, but keep an eye on it and make sure there's no sensitivity eating or drinking. He doesn't seem to, as he ate and drank fine at dinner. The dentist asked me to call on Monday morning and let him know how things are going. He said if he did anything it would be to file it down a little and coat it with something if it was rough. Apparently his daughter did the same thing when she was a toddler too. So I think he's fine, he just gets to look like the bruiser he is until his baby teeth fall out. Thankfully, it's not that noticeable, even if he's smiling.
