Patrick’s lost about 7 or 8 teeth in the past year; I’ve lost count. What’s strange is, aside from one of his front teeth, the remainder of his adult teeth seem in no rush to break through his gums. He’s had a particularly gap-toothed smile for the past several weeks.
Alex, in contrast, has a mouth full of adult-size teeth that look too big for his face. His 4 front top teeth stick out so much it looks like they’re trying to escape.
I don’t think we’ve put enough money in savings to cover the dental bills.
