The Emperor's New Smile.

Emperor will get partial braces soon!  But first, two of his baby teeth need to be extracted.

Eeyow!  Emperor made it through!  See the holes in his head?  Next week, he will have a regular dental cleaning and the orthodontist will glue brackets onto some of his top teeth.
Emperor's baby teeth had very long ROOTS.  That means it wasn't a very easy process.  Poor Emperor has taken some Tylenol and is cuddling his stuffed tiger and playing Civilization all day on the computer.  Homeschooling and even his private chess lesson have been cancelled for tonight.  His father should bring some applesauce home so Emperor can have it for dinner.

  4. Emperor is so brave! And Applesauce is a fitting reward.
    When my K had her four wisdom teeth out in day surgery we gave her baby foods until her mouth was comfortable again the next day. Baby fruit jellies, baby applesauce, baby chocolate custard.

    1. Had some pudding on hand too, but the baby food is actually really YUMMY! And a good temporary solution to the dental problem. Gerber makes a blueberry one that is really good. :)
