My little Potter

Isn't he so stinkin' cute! Seriously!




But....this poor little guy has to have surgery. Remember last year when he knocked his teeth crooked & his mouth swelled up and stuff? Well, he basically killed the teeth. And since last summer they've just been decaying nad have started breaking off and rotting out. I was hesitant last year to put him through oral surgery, but as his teeth have detoriorated, we've decided that it can't be put off any longer. So on April 4th they're going to go in and dig out all of the decay. If there's enough good root, they can do caps on those four front teeth. If not, well then, he'll be toothless until his permanent teeth grow in.

I'm all for no caps! Ammon hated his and I thought they were hideous! He'll be fine though. Ammon went through it like a trooper! He had the same exact thing happen and ended up with a hole in them. Good luck!

You know I had a friend who at 3 years old knocked out her front teeth and she had fake teeth. Not caps but like dentures but wired in to her back teeth. they removed them when her adult teeth came in. Good luck!

Yes. He is so stinkin' cute! Grandma should be home to help when he has the surgery.
