I was so excited to see the boys again after almost 2 weeks of denied contact. The boys ran into my arms and it was an emotional reunion for all!
The first thing I noticed after leaving the visiting centre was that Benji was missing another front tooth. When I inquired about it after returning the children, the woman at the centre asked the father. He told her that the missing tooth was ‘a false tooth (put in the last time Benjamin was operated on to have teeth removed) which had broken (when he’d bitten into something) and needs to be replaced.’
Not only was I not informed that my 4 (then 3) year old child has a false tooth but that the courts can still claim the children are being well cared for!
I have never heard of children having false teeth at 3 years old!!! Please could anyone with dental knowledge or access to a dentist respond if they have ever heard of a child of 3 having false teeth?
It’s also questionable why Benjamin was given false teeth but as the photos show, Sammy’s teeth were surgically removed and he was not allowed the ‘benefit’ of false teeth.
When the children were in my care, everyone knew them for their toothy grins, their teeth were as perfect as little pearls.
Their milk teeth have not fallen out naturally but have been surgically removed without any explanation by their so-called ‘carer.’
