Here they are, friends, the last of Christian's baby teeth, all measuring between 1/2 and 3/4 of an inch long! And a couple were even wider than they were long! Yikes!
In preparation for some serious orthodontal work, Christian had all 8 of these monsters extracted this morning! The oral surgeon said with the full roots still on them, they would have been in there for years and years still if he hadn't taken them out! Christian did fabulously, and momma was impressed that she could sit and watch the whole thing! We are grateful for blessings and prayers that made this experience as good as it gets!
The dentist guy also said no school for Christian for 2 days...his body has to rest and heal, so continued prayers would be really appreciated!
Examining his tooth after the bleeding stopped...4 hours ago that was in my head?!?!? Unbelievable!
Yeah, we've got alot of work to do. He actually does have two more teeth behind his two front teeth....his "shark row" as he calls it... braces come on May 11th, once those huge holes on the top and bottom heal!
So for the next few days at least, Christian's diet is limited to soft and slimy. He's actually pretty excited! Look what he picked out at the store!
I didn't have the heart to tell him once those eight adult teeth grow in, four of them are coming out, as well! Oh, well, nothing another trip to the store won't help! Bring on the chocolate pudding!
