"It must come out!"

When my daughter was about 1 1/2...she fell and hit her mouth on the corner of the family room table. Well, that tooth started to become brown and the dentist said it would die. Well, 4 years later....she saw the dentist and to prevent a bad infection he felt the tooth needed to come out now.

My daughter was a bit fidgety with just the cleaning so I was worried about "shots"..."laughing gas" etc.. However, after a weekend of {prepping} her and ...OK...a little {prize} at the end! She was ready to go this week and get her tooth out!

She did great! The dentist said {perfect}!

When she came home and saw the gauze with the blood THEN she started to panic. But, all is well now and she tells anyone who WILL listen that her tooth was pulled!

She is just too cute! I'm glad it all went well.

A few years ago Lexi had to have two teeth pulled and was so scared. She never even realized they numbed the area (with a shot!!!!) and it went off like a charm! The tooth fairy was quite generous to her that night.♥

Our Wild Child fell and hit her top front 2 teeth and the dentist says they may have to come out eventually...if they don't come out on their own first.

My son had the same thing, he hit his tooth when he was about 2 or 3 and then it finally had to get pulled when he was 6. He ended up on the verge of an infection when the dentist caught it.

Poor baby! I can't imagine how scary that must be! She is SO cute. I would have totally had to bribe Kaish to get him into the dentist as well : )

I am all for bribing in situations like this. Eli just had and MRI this morning and he had to lay still in the machine... last time he had it, he was put under. He did great and we took him to an English Speaking movie this afternoon as a reward with popcorn. he was in heaven. I was thankful there was a kids movie actually playing in english here.... so nice
she is so cute, I love her color hair
