Tooth Fairy



Today I had my baby tooth extracted! Bottom left, a couple behind my canine.



Somehow it has managed to survive 30 years, with some help from a few white fillings! I don't have an adult one underneath so I'm stuck with a gap unless my other teeth fancy moving around a bit. My dentist told me that apparently this tooth (E) is the most common one which doesn't have an adult underneath to replace it.

I thought you might like to see a photo of it haha!

It had to come out because it was causing gyp, and making the tooth behind it more susceptible to decay.

I will put my baby tooth under my pillow tonight, maybe the toothfairy will visit.....

Other news, with an environmental flavour:
My brother is moving to Texas with his wife in a couple of months (see their blog to the right). He found a current radioshow on Radio 4 looking at the impact of American carbon footprint v. the UK one. This show is comparing a family from Texas, with a family from Knutsford....how coincidental!

Apparently the average US citizen creates 20 tonnes of carbon per annum. The UK citizen is half that at 10 tonnes. The average Indian creates less than 1 tonne!

If you have a spare half an hour, listen to the programme. It's a three-parter. The next one is Friday 20th April at 1100 hours.
