It’s NEVER a dull moment with two boys. Last night when the boys were playing a game of Captain American vs. Thor… Peyton accidentally hit Jackson in the face with his Captain America shield (it’s a frisbee with a band on the back) chipping one of Jackson’s front teeth. This was yet another fun-filled moment in our house full of testosterone! Remember we JUST got braces put on those pretty little teeth for Mr. Jackson and fortunately they did help to protect his teeth for some more serious damage. But still, he had a rather large chip on one of his front top teeth.
I felt bad for him. He immediately said, “But this is one of my adult teeth!” After the shock over the whole incident, I was able to determine that it was not hurting him (so I was assuming that the nerve was not exposed) so we could wait until morning to deal with this.
I was so glad when I looked online and today was an early open day for our dentist! Even more ecstatic when they told us to just come right over! We spent all of this morning at the dentist and orthodontist office (which happen to be right next door to one another) getting x-rays, ultimately removing the bracket and wire from his braces to rebuild his tooth, and putting it all back together at the end. All is good now and our beautiful smile has returned (as if nothing ever happened).
