For Christopher's case, this is his 4th time to the dentist. And I think this particular visit could be the deal breaker. His first 3 times were to do some filling work which in comparison to this visit was noisy but painless.
He has an adult tooth coming up. His bottom right front tooth has sprouted just behind his baby teeth. And his baby tooth shows NO sign of coming out.
So, we had to go to the dentist to pull out the baby tooth to make way for the adult one.
And now we know why the baby tooth showed no signs of coming out. It was 1/3 out and 2/3 rooted! So, I for see a lot of difficulties in his tooth changing process.
He did very well at the dentist. He was very calm and listened to all the instructions. When the dentist gave him the injection, she had him close his eyes. Which was really great coz the needle looked mighty scary!
1 hour after, his gum still feels numb, he is in some pain. Resting now with an ice pack on his bottom lip and TV. Looks like no tuition for today and something soft for dinner!
