Anyhow the dentist gave me 2 options:
A.) Have the top 4 teeth extracted in the office while I hold him in the dental chair so he doesn''t have to be put under or
B.) Have the teeth extracted at a hospital under general anesthesia!!!
First of all, his decay is due to an Upper Lip Tie and perhaps an unfortunate bit of poor dental genetics, NOT lack of dental hygiene and secondly, are you (dentist) out of your FREAKING mind?!? Who extracts a 20 month olds teeth and expects them to go toothless until their adult teeth come in?!?
This was not a pediatric dentist, so I did get a referral to one, that I likely can't afford and on my referral papers, he wrote under remarks: Mom wants to keep teeth....Umm (pardon my french, but...) HELL YES, I want to keep his teeth, he's not even 2 years old!!! Grrrr!
I'm just so upset, my poor baby!
