We just got back from Cinderella's dentist appointment about an hour ago, and OH MY GOSH, PEOPLE!!!! Her mouth is a mess!
We've always known our kids would need braces. I had braces. Prince Charming had braces. Shoot, I've even had jaw surgery.
Cinderella is not even 5 yet, and she's already lost 2 teeth on the bottom. The dentist said she'll probably lose another 2 teeth on the bottom within 6 months to a year.
Her baby teeth are so crowded that her new, permanent teeth are already coming in way more crooked than mine ever were.
The only positive thing the girl has going for her teeth is that she is actually missing her entire second set of bicuspids. They've never formed. Seriously, this is a blessing.
After seeing the x-rays, I wouldn't be surprised if Cinderella lost 2 baby teeth for each permanent tooth that comes in. Her mouth is just that bad. Her big teeth are so big, and her baby teeth are so small.
Guess we'd better start saving for the orthodontist soon.
