I feel so sad, and ashamed.
my 8 year old has bad decay in his back adult molar tooth. The dentist tried to do a temporary repair that would last him for a few years, but ultimately it needs removal. My son became upset during today's procedure, so the dentist stopped, & said it's too traumatic and sore to keep going so gave me a referral to a dental surgeon. I left almost in tears, I feel so bad.
anyway after my boy had calmed down, he said it wasn't his tooth that had been hurting during the procedure, it was his cheek! I think he was just overtired & overwhelmed, poor kid.
woukd you return to thr dentist to request he tries again? This will buy us a few more years with the tooth if successful, to allow his other teeth to space and come down etc. or just go ahead with the extraction and have it over with?
i feel physically sick today, I feel so rotten. Always brushed his teeth & eaten well' I just can't understand it. We didn't floss though, I've obviously done something majorly wrong. I've let my boy down big time. Even I still have all of my adult teeth. Just so cruel.
