Snaggle tooth

See the tooth to YOUR right?  (the left side of her face) The one that's kind of sticking out funny? Yeah, while I was in Serbia/Bulgaria the new tooth came in. Except that, as is common for kids with Down syndrome, and has happened with almost every one of Angela's baby teeth, it didn't fall out, just pushed out. Except that she had braces on, so it pushed her braces out of line, messing up everything ELSE! UGH!


We're walking out the door now to go have that tooth pulled. This is the last of her baby too that's allowed to fall out. There are 5 others that are missing adult teeth behind them. Because they're all together in one spot (three on top, two on the bottom) if they fall out we'll have to put implants in because she'd loose bone. So, we're hoping they stay at least a few more years, but that's kind of wishful thinking.
