My daughter (who will be 4 in May) has been going to the dentist since she was 18 months old and has always had perfect exams. I brush her teeth twice a day, floss them weekly and she does not drink soda at all and very rarely has candy or junk food. Yet, this dentist trip was not so pleasant. I received the news that she has 5 cavities and granted they are not that big and the dentist said that she would not have been able to see them without the x-ray it still hit me like a ton a bricks. I almost cried in the exam room. I feel like such a failure to my daughter, should I be feeling this way? Has this happened to anyone else?
