A Little Crowded
My child is so awesome she grows two rows of teeth. At her dental appointment last month I was told to make her an orthodontist appointment for August. Now take a good look into her mouth. Her six year molars are in, but notice they're still partially covered by her gums. Sure she has lost her front four bottom teeth and currently all four of the adult teeth have at least cut, but do you see anything an orthodontist can really do? Sure they could pull the next two teeth in line, but you know that means two more teeth are going to come in. Mom told me that her teeth would one day fall out and when I see the adult teeth coming in I would think, "those are not going to fit." Well guess what, they don't fit! Unfortunately the situation isn't any better on top. She has lost one top tooth, the adult tooth is already coming in. Now she's complaining that the next tooth (not 2nd front tooth) is hurting. It's loose. She's going to be toothless soon. Either that or have to many teeth to reasonably fit in her mouth. I guess we can see the bottom is already full.
