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.
