Silas chipped his front right tooth not long after his first birthday. I was so upset about it! The chip was a half moon shape but didn't seem sharp. Last week he hit his mouth on our coffee table and chipped his front left tooth! Not even 15 months old and already two chipped teeth!? Things are not starting off well for the dental health of this kid!
I called Dr. Fleck in Clarksville. He is an awesome pediatric dentist who I went to until I was 16 or so. They had us come in the very next morning. Despite feeling pretty lousy (head cold, etc), Silas was such a good boy as he sat with me in the waiting room. We didn't have too long before they called us back. The staff definitely know how to work with toddlers! They didn't waste one minute but got right to examining Silas' teeth. Dr. Fleck came in to take a look and confirmed that it was an enamel formation problem. He instructed me to brush/clean Silas' teeth after EVERY feeding and to come back in three months for a follow up. The assistant then applied a protective sealant on Si's teeth. He thought the taste was interesting to say the least. She gave him a little basketball and a fish squirt toy. He held onto both of them the whole way home!
Poor little guy didn't feel well!
All done and waiting for some toys!
Very happy to be home!
