Every six months, you look forward to going to the dentist. The office that we go to is an amazing place for children. When you walk in, you would never know it was a dentists office. The only item that gives it away are only books about teeth on the shelf. After that, it is a playroom and video game wonderland.
This past week, I picked you up after school and we went to the dentist a bit early so you would have a little more time to play video games. You and JSL loved it.
When it was time to head back to the room for your teeth to be cleaned, the woman noticed that you now have your permanent top front teeth. This meant that it was time to do some more extensive x-rays. You are not a big fan of x-rays and these new things definitely scared you. We talked you through the entire time. When we moved to the room with the panoramic x-ray machine, the contraption really worried you. Still, you listened to us and made it.
When the dentist walked into the room after your teeth were sparkling, she talked with me. She said everything looked good on the x-rays and paused. Then she said she noticed something. It seems that the silly Tooth Fairy made a mistake and took one of your permanent teeth. It is missing and happens to people from time to time. The Tooth Fairy must have thought it was so special and took it on one of her visits. I wonder if she knows we caught her and will get you something special soon. I guess we will have to wait and see.
Hang in there sweetie, there is nothing to worry about. Your dentist told us a great place to go and we will take care of that missing tooth.

Oh my gosh! Are you looking at an implant? One of Brian’s best friends was born without any permanent teeth. Implants were new back then and he was in high school before he was able to get them. He had a lot of fun with his dentures though. Especially on Halloween. Thinking of your little one!

Forgive my way late comment, but I am missing 2 of my permanent teeth, pre-molars on the bottom. I got braces in 7th grade to pull the back teeth forward and close up the gap.
Alex lost a tooth over 7 months ago and the permanent tooth still hasn’t come in. The boys went to the dentist last week and he was due for x-rays anyway, and the tooth is up there, it’s just really slow to come in, probably delayed by other teeth that haven’t come out yet.
