  • my son chipped his tooth when he was an infant but the dentist and pediatric just aske dme how that happened, i told them the truth that he fell off the bed and thats how it happened, and they didnt make a big deal about it. anyways those are his baby teeth so they will fall off eventually, he's only 3 right now.
