Update on the Lord of Chaos
Took Cal to the dentist today so he could check out the chipped teeth. I was hoping the solution would be inexpensive but that's not gonna happen. While the nerve isn't exposed right now the dentin is (which I could see). With no enamel to protect the dentin, the nerve would soon be exposed and that would be very bad to say the least.
So we're looking at a pulpotomy. The dentist will remove part of the root, fill the cavity inside with medicinal gunk and then put a cap on the end of the tooth to protect everything.
After the dental visit I had to take a form over to Cal's doctor so he could sign off on his health because when he has the pulpotomy he'll have to take some meds that will relax him. As soon as I return that form to the dentist I can schedule the appointment. Fun!
