I could use some prayers, positive thoughts or some good juju right now. My baby boy went in for oral surgery a couple minutes ago and I am on my own in the waiting room. Set says he has "soft teeth ". And despite my brushing his teeth twice a day, flossing once, and him drinking plenty of floride and cutting out all juice for over a year now... He still gets lots of cavities and one of his old filling partially fell out resulting I decay getting back up in there an needing to take his front tooth!!!
My baby is going to have no two front teeth and probably a mouth full of silver but worst part is we have been here at the hospital since 9am (it's now 330). Ad surgery will take another 2-3 hrs!! My poor baby I feel so helpless and Hurt for him!!
Also on a random note I have a question, have I ever heard of keepin the tooth they pull? When the nurse comes in to update me I'm going to ask of I can save it. I have a sterling silver baby tooth holder for him that I for at my shower and while I expected the first tooth he lost would fall out on it's own I feel sentimental about those two big front teeth :(.
Has anyone been in this position before? Do u think it'd be crazy of me to ask to keep it? Please positive thoughts needed today ladies!! I'm a worried mama (even though my baby told me.. "Don't worry mommy I will be fine"

yes. the pre rinse stained the teeth so we knew where to brush
then the fluoride every nite before bed
she ended up having fewer cavities than the other two who have healthy teeth because she was more vigilant
she had to get one silver tooth and then we started the three steps. the doc also ended up applying a sealant
when she stopped the three steps about 6 months ago she developed 4 cavities...so- yeah. i would say it works.
