Out it came!

2 weeks back, we paid Dr Kong a visit and when I mentioned to her our concern that her adult tooth was cutting through, her advice to us was to return when it happened. C mentioned over the weekend that she felt a slight pain and upon inspection, we saw that it had indeed erupted so I made an appointment to go down this afternoon.

Her tooth sprouting behind her milk teeth. I was worried that we had to remove 2 teeth to accommodate this one.

Dr examining C and then applied some numbing gel on her gums.

She gave C's gums a good massage before she started. C did not show any fear or fidget as Dr had instructed her to keep her eyes close. She then slowly injected her gums.

All the time, Dr was talking to C and she was extremely calm.

Then, she proceeded to extract her tooth. C commented that she felt a slight pain but Dr assured her that it would be over in a second. So with a little twitching and twisting, the milk tooth was out.

I had a great fright when I saw it while Dr nodded her head and said it was no wonder her tooth wasn't shaky. The entire root was intact and she said that C had good teeth! Haha! If we would to let nature runs its course, this tooth would take a good 6 to 12 months before it would fall off. 

Dr cleaning C up.

C's tooth was placed in this cute "tooth coffin" and she was saying that now she has a hole in her teeth. C was alright except when the gauze soaked through and droplets of saliva and blood dripped on her dress, staining it. But I gave her a big hug and praised her for her bravery.

The very cute tooth coffin, which C wore as a bracelet.

I bought her this to keep all her milk teeth.

:) C said she would be waiting for the Tooth Fairy to make her maiden visit tonight.
