My poor baby

As if he hasn't been through enough with his teeth already, Sean now has to have his two lower wisdom teeth removed. During his monthly orthodontic appointment yesterday, x-rays revealed that the two lower wisdom teeth have grown in impacted, and are putting direct pressure on the molars, directly conflicting with what the braces are trying to do. So, it's off to the oral surgeon for Sean. He's not thrilled with the fact that he's going to have to go through this, but he does know that it will all be worth it in the end.

And yes, this is just another thing for Sean that is ahead of schedule since most people don't even get their widsom teeth until their late teens or early twenties! He's twelve and already has them!!!

Sean, dude, give the dental insurance a rest! ;)

Poor Guy! He's definitely ahead of his time. Tell him I said it's not too bad. I had all four taken out at once and the first day wasn't fun, but my family waited on me hand and foot......yeah for me! I'll be thinking of him (and you Mama).

Oh, and fill the cupboards with applesauce and mashed potatoes :)

Sorry to hear about your upcoming dental work but just think of the beautiful smile your going to have the rest of your life...even though I think you have a beautiful smile already. Just think about this summer and the fun we're going to have. Love you, Grandma & Grandpa Larry
