I'm so upset right now...forgive me while I ramble a bit. Harrison has been going to the dentist since he was a baby with his first real appointment at 3 years old. Up until now he's been just fine. Well, he's now lost two front teeth and his first set of perm molars are in. His front teeth appear to be normal as they're coming in, but his perm molars are crumbling and appear to not have normal enamel on them Our dentist is currently consulting with a pediatric specialist (whom we will be going to see personally) to determine their thoughts on next steps. We have no idea yet how widespread the issue is, how many of his teeth will be affected, etc. There's no good solution - crowns, extractions....all very real possibilities in his near future.
He asked me a lot of questions and right now it appears all of the asthma meds he took as a baby - both nebulizer and oral - are the likely culprits. While his teeth were forming, the meds used to enable him to breath were destroying his teeth I'm trying to stay positive and hope for the best, but I can't help worrying about worst case scenarios and all the "what-ifs". Oh, and I feel sooooo guilty and responsible. Sometimes being a parent is so freeking hard!!
