We did it! Eric went to the dentist today and everything went great! I am so relieved. We went to a pediatric dentist here in the area that one of Mom’s triathlon friends recommended and he was wonderful. Eric had his x-rays and examination done and not a single cavity! Yeah! For those of you who have spent some time with Eric you know that he chews on his lower lip, the dentist said that this really needs to be corrected before he does damage to his developing mouth. (i.e. retract his jaw and give himself buck teeth.) He recommended using things like bad-tasting Chapstick to help deter him from the habit.
I just wish that my dentist visit this morning went as well. I have a back molar that is cracked in two places and I need a crown. Whimper whimper sob sob. I have never had one before and am not looking forward to it. However, on the brighter side, Ryan came out without a single cavity! Yeah for him and Eric! Can I just say that I am grateful for good dentists and insurance. What a blessing.
