She had a bad dental experience when young. The dentist made a wrong call when she chipped a tooth. As a result, she had to undergo a root canal at the tender age of 7. Coupled with a small jaw, she ended up with a very crowded mouth. Misaligned teeth resulted in her top teeth impacting her bottom. At age 9, some of her bottom teeth became shaky!!
A change of dentist came with the need to remove 4 teeth. With the fear as a result of her previous dental experience, she had to remove them under general anaesthesia. The fear is still there. No one is allowed near her mouth, except for this new dentist. Even if she has a shaky tooth, she will not allow anyone near it, not even to just pull it out.
Last night, in her sleep, one shaky tooth fell out!! Discovered it this morning. Good thing she did not swallow it.
In one and a half weeks, she has another dental appointment. Her jaw is really too crowded. She needs to remove another 4 teeth. We will decide then, whether she still needs to go under GA.
Please pray for her to be strong and overcome her fear. If not, it will be another $3000 out of my pocket.
