Living in a mobile home, the house had two doors. One at the front and one near the back.
It was the front door the young girl used when she raced across the street to the football field to practice her baton twirling. The childhood baton twirling that later lead to the adult decision to investigate dental implants and other cosmetic dentistry options. The baton did not belong to the young girl, however, and that was the initial problem. When the beginning twirler threw the baton so high that she momentarily lost it in the sun, it unexpectedly came down and landed on her right front tooth.
Chipping off the inside corner, the now adult twirler has a memory of that was the sharpest edge she ever felt. In fact, she remembered fearing that the sharpness could possibly slice her tongue. The fear of a bloody tongue, however, was the least of her worries at the time. Before long the girl realized that she had not only chipped her tooth, she had also dented her sister’s baton. The baton she was forbidden to use.
It is difficult to remember if that baton was a birthday gift or if it was a day when both sisters were able to pick a treat. One sister picked the baton and the other sister selected a less worthy, fleeting treat. Although the older sister would not ever remember what she picked for herself on that baton twirling day, she would never forget the chipped tooth. In fact, after three less satisfactory fixes that did not last very long, she was now sitting in a dental office waiting for a consultation about dental implants. Dental implants that would provide a permanent fix to the problem that had been marring her smile since that day of baton twirling.
Although she remembers nothing about the confession or the dentist visit to repair the chip, the dent in the baton is a story that is never forgotten. Hopefully with successful dental implants, though, the dent to your smile would disappear in everyone’s memory.
