Kiko's First Visit to the Dentist
July 29, 2014
I guess, everyone had experienced a disturbing toothache. This condition is so annoying that we can hardly endure the terrible pain it caused. How much more if a 5-year old kid suffers from this unbearable soreness?
|Kiko's First Visit to the Dentist|
Kiko has been complaining about a recurring pain in his decayed right molar. Brushing his teeth and taking paracetamol somehow gave him temporary relief. The pain persisted and kept him up for two consecutive nights. My husband and I encouraged him to visit the dentist to check on his aching tooth and he agreed.
July 27, Sunday morning was Kiko's first visit to the dentist. I knew he was a little apprehensive but Doc Ric's warm and friendly approach made Kiko very comfortable.
I thought he's not yet ready to sit on a dental chair but I underestimated the braveness of this young kiddo. He's cooperative that's why Doc Ric was able to perform two temporary fillings successfully with less effort than usual for a toddler his age.
No tooth extraction was advised because it's too pre-mature for the removal of a baby tooth that will guide the permanent to come out in due time.
