Hello,My 5 year old had a procedure done two years ago on her cavities, Now I took her back to the dentist and was told she had more cavities that I didn't clean her teeth well. She said that now she would have to pull out the bottom front teeth and one from her top front teeth and a crown on one of her back tooth. The dentist made me feel like a horrible mom, she then went to another patient a few chairs away and asked that mom how old her daugther was and the lady said 4, the dentist raised her voice and said "Good Job Mom no cavities, you have done a wonderful job" I think she did that to make me feel bad and she did that night I cried my brains out feeling bad that my child has to go through all this. I love my daughter to death and wished that I have taken more care of her teeth.
Anyways, Will it hurt my daughter when she gets her teeth pulled out I know they had said that one of the tooth had a really long root!
First of all I think you should stop going to that Dentist. Bad teeth can also be from genetics. Some people just make more plaque naturally. I don't think they pull teeth unless they are very bad since the baby teeth are spacers for the adult teeth & if they are pulled then the new teeth will come in crooked. I'd get a second opinion before I let anyone pull her teeth. GL!
