Sew happily ever after Posted July 15, 2009 Share Posted July 15, 2009 DD9 has been complaining of mild toothache pain on several occasions. Went to the dentist today. She has some infection under 2 baby teeth and they will have to be pulled. She also has 5 cavities in other baby teeth. Tomorrow we go back at 4PM for him to pull the 2 baby teeth and fill the cavities. I'm just frustrated b/c I'm wondering how things can get that bad between the last cleaning in Jan. and now. She had 6 fillings done in Jan/Feb! Part of me thinks perhaps the dentist is milking us b/c we have medicaid. I'm frustrated b/c medicaid will probably end at the end of July (haven't heard for sure) and she will need a spacer which will have to be paid for out of our pocket--which leaves us with an interesting decision: spacer or food? Please don't judge me/us...and b/4 you ask, yes we brush teeth and really well too. I think she's just inherited bad teeth from dad and grandma. My step daughter has had TONS of dental work done and has had many baby teeth pulled as well as my DH and his mom. She had false teeth very early in life b/c of her bad teeth. Just venting! Thanks!
