I'm upset over teeth!!

Can you believe it? The subject of teeth and I am upset!!!

You see, my kids have bad teeth. When my son was 2 it cost us over $2000 for him to go to hospital and have all his teeth repaired. Keeping on top of his teeth problems has been an ongoing problem, but I think we have (almost).

He isn't scared of the dentist so has gone to have a couple of fillings replaced and is so brave!! He's 5 now and his first adult molars are starting to come through and I am scared!!

Let me just say before I go on that we don't let our kids drink alot of cola's or fizzy drinks, they don't live on a high sugar diet, I don't even give them fruitjuice!!! They drink milk and water and have an alround pretty ok diet, not perfect but pretty good.

Our kids brush their teeth every day and STILL problems :( I have friends and family who feed their kids absolute CRAP never brush their teeth and they don't have half the dental issues our family faces.

So anyway the other day I look at Miss 3's teeth and what do I find but a big cavity on her back molar, I amost cried. I feel so responsible!!

Now the thing is, that it really sux, and that some of the problem is genetic, they have crap teeth and we will do the best we can to keep on top of the problem, but I mean christ, thousands of dollars a year in dental bills is so hard to cope with.

Hubby and i don't have good teeth either so we are in the midst of spending alot of money getting ours fixed and it just pisses me that I can't see a light at the end of the tunnel.

The dentist that did the original work to my little boy's teeth said it is a problem that will be a continual battle, but I didn't think it would quite be such an uphill one.

So I feel like the worst parent on earth, and i know If I did nothing and let their teeth just rot out of their heads then THAT would be bad, but I can't help but feel responsible for their dental problems.

Ok I am just ranting now, but we don't have thousands of dollars to spend, you know one day I would like a bigger car or to buy a house, but between us all, and this is no exaggeration we probably have about 5 thousand dollars in dental work to have done.

I know there are worse medical conditions in the world to be cursed with, but it's crap when you try and do the right thing and it just blows up in your face all the time.

I guess at least our dentist will love us, we are helping pay for his retirement for sure LOL...
