Update on Tyson's 3 Front Teeth Procedure.

So many of you have been kind enough to check in, on Tyson, to see what the status is since his appointment with the orthopedic surgeon. We feel so blessed to have friends who expressed an interest/concern. Here is goes...

After a L-O-N-G, 2-hour, unsuccessful, and frustrating visit to the orthopedic surgeon, we left without even seeing the surgeon. LONG story (won't bore you with it). Anyway, the surgeon called me and we were able to discuss/consult Tyson's situation in length. Due to the nature of the situation, Tyson also has to see a orthodontist. His appointment is on November 2nd.

The oral surgeon said, "It's possible we will end up having to remove more than 2 teeth. The x-rays show a ton of crowding." Looks like we have a long road ahead of us in the dental world, but we are so thankful that our health insurance appears to cover this procedure. We do NOT have dental insurance but "impacted teeth" are considered a health condition and NOT a dental condition.

Tyson is now aware that he has to have surgery, so don't feel as if you cannot ask us about it in "front" of him (no pun intended)!
