Chipped Tooth

2006-11-27 One-minute read

Yesterday Alice chipped her top right front tooth (maxillary central incisor). Alice was sitting in her booster seat before supper; she was tired and fooling around. She swung her head forward and banged her mouth on the table. Immediately she started to cry. Corinna and I both came running. I expected Alice to have a cut lip, but her lip was fine. As she clung to her mommy and cried I could see that the top of her tooth was chipped. It didn’t take long for Alice to stop crying, but Corinna and I were both pretty upset. Alice asked for her noodles (kraft dinner), so I got to work cooking my specialty. After a good supper of noodles we gave her some ice cream. It didn’t bother her tooth at all, so that’s good.
