Missing Cavity

Lovely. Lucia went to the dentist today for her semi-annual cleaning and exam and discovered that not only did one of her fillings come out (the dark spot in her tooth), but that tooth is also cracked. The dentist said she’s lucky she’s not in pain. So, now she’ll have to go back in and get a new filling and a partial crown (a porcelain cap?). Apparently she’s hard on her teeth (from clenching?) because this isn’t her first cracked tooth. Dental problems during/around pregnancy are nothing new for Lucia. When she was pregnant with Mallory, she had to get a root canal and crown. Right after she had Chelsea, she had another root canal and crown. Sadly, this is par for the course.
