In my very first blog post a few years ago, I wrote on an interesting subject of people’s pets chewing on their prosthetic eyes. Today’s post is similar in some ways, it involves teeth and prosthetic eyes as well. As we all know, kids are prone to put anything into their mouths and chomp on it a bit. Over the years, we have had a few patients chew on their own artificial eyes. Here are some before an after photos of a repair we did recently. I am happy to report that this particular child has grown out of their habit!
