Unhappy Broken Tooth

I'm so mad... my oldest can be so thoughtless at times; not thinking through the consequences of his actions. He decided to toss a billiards (pool) ball at ds8 for him to "catch" and broke the bottom half of his upper central incisor. (Scroll down on the image with this link to see what I'm talking about.)

Ds8 over all is being a good sport about it. He says it hurts only when he wants to bite into something. I'm not looking forward to the dental visits or the bills!!!! Ds12 has said he was sorry and offered to help "pay" for the repair. Will keep you posted -- just needed to vent.

that's awful! poor little guy!
and it's his adult tooth isn't it?!! yikes!

my sister broke my front tooth when i was 12. i had to have it repaired/bonded. the good part is--the "bonding" has lasted all this time! I've never had to have it re-done

i know that's probably no consolation. everything works out!

That's a tremendous consolation -- thank you! I had hoped someone here would have gone through a similar situation and could share about the experience (though I wouldn't wish such a painful event on anyone just for my consolation).

OH NO!! Has he gotten it repaired?

My 2nd youngest sis broke her tooth while trying to jump up on a propane tank They were able to bond it back on. She just takes special care not to bite directly on to food with her front teeth but it has stayed on,very well, for atleat 10 years so far

Oh, thanks DeDee, this is good to know.

We have an appt for tomorrow to see the dentist. I'm praying for the bill to not be skyhigh. Stay tuned!!!

Thanks so much Darcy.

Hubby took ds8 yesterday to his dentist who is a Christian. Dentist said the procedure is normally $375, but he'll do it for $150.

The appt. is scheduled for 10/4. Thank you all for your prayers regarding the cost!!!
