Those two words are never said together, AND for good reason!!! A cavity is never fun!!!! Austin had a cavity filled last year, and the little bugger fell out, we went back in and the dentist fixed it, he said that in baby teeth fillings tend to fall out because blah, blah blah I don't remember, so when it fell out a second time, I didn't think anything of it, except the fact that he had a horrible tooth ache with it. So we called the dentist yet again, but now our insurance has switched so we have to go to another dentist, YAY this is always so much fun to take your kids to a new dentist. Luckily my fabulous sister in law used to work for a pediatric dentist which she loved so we thought we would give him a try!!!
This is where it gets "fun"! We take Austin in for his appointment he cried most of the way to the Dentist Office, then cried when they tried to take x-rays then cried when they asked him to sit in the chair, then cried when they just looked in his mouth!! And because of all of this...
We get to go to Primary Childrens on 06/25 and he gets to be completely put out, sedated, asleep, knocked out, however you want to put it, so that he can have a baby tooth fixed!!!!
Tip to all parents out there Brush AND Floss your kids teeth morning noon and night, and no sugar EVER!!! And don't let your kids inherit your super thin enamel and let them get cavities easily like you.
However I am so thankful that there is such thing as sedation dentistry otherwise, we would have to strap him to the chair kicking and screaming through the whole procedure!!!
