So I took Boston to the pediatric dentist today and things are even worse than what we thought. One maybe two of the teeth need more than just fillings...they need crowns because the decay is so bad. How did this happen? Did I do something wrong? Anyway the dentist was really cool...he reassured me that I was a good mom. He said this could be caused by several things such as genetics (I knew I passed on my bad teeth), diet, or a defect in his enamel. He said he felt like the best option for Boston's sake would be to do it as an outpatient surgery and put him under. That way they could do everything all at once and keep everything as positive for Boston as possible. It would definitely beat taking him in 4 or 5 times and having him go through all of that...even if he does seem to handle it pretty well right now. I agree with the dentist...I don't want all of this to become a negative experience for Boston, but man I just know that this is not going to be cheap. We are going to be looking at a dental bill, anesthesia bill, and a hospital bill....all for some BABY TEETH that he will LOOSE. Ugh. Why can't he just leave it and wait till he looses the teeth you ask? Well he will need those teeth till he is at least 12 and they are the most important ones for chewing and eating. Jared keeps telling me to quit stressin and get used to it. "He will probably break an arm, or knock out some teeth....we will be paying medical and dental bills as long as we have kids!" I know it is true....I just didn't think it would start this early. All I can say is that you better believe that I am already brushing Tayden's little teeth morning and night now. We are going to prevent this from happening again if at all possible.
