Youch! A shower fall.

My BF's youngest daughter (9) fell in the shower last night and landed - face first. She ended up chipping 2 of her front, adult teeth! Youch!

I'm hoping the dental insurance will cover capping them. I haven't seen her yet, but apparent she chipped the front two! Since that would have a significant effect on her eating, it may not be considered cosmetic - I hope! I know her dad and mom can't afford to pay for it otherwise.

I can't wait to give her a hug (and remind her that she's still beautiful).

Oh no! My oldest, also 9, chipped one of his adult front teeth on a glass. He sneezed and bobbed his head right into the top on the glass. Fortunately it was only a tiny chip and the dentist says so problem. I hope that they can get her teeth fixed via insurance. I'll be praying for insurance to take care of this.

Your sister in Christ,

Thanks Robin!

Turns out insurance won't cover it until she's 16?! How crazy is that? Right now, there is no way to pay cash to fix 'em but maybe if their dad gets a nice tax refund he can start the process, but currently he's unemployed and there really are no jobs in his area for unskilled laborers. He used to do customer service, but it's largely been outsourced now-a-days.

It's actually california's state insurance that is denying the services. They aren't "medically necessary" at this point.

It's very disappointing. :?

Yeah, state won't do anything for my kids either. One of girls needs some serious work done.
