Call the dentist, and I did, eventually, about three weeks later. At that visit, the dentist was quick to explain we only had about two more weeks to encourage the baby tooth to fall out on its own. Otherwise, we were headed for desperate measures, according to me. Well the two weeks past and then we were back at the dentist. Thank goodness Dr. Ligh knew what he was doing. However, I being the skittish type, had to learn to become a good hand holder for Little Margo. The bravery a mother can conjure up on behalf of their child is amazing. I suppose I should include a few more detailed photo's of the event.
Next Dr. Ligh informed Margo to relax while he placed some medicine on her tooth, to make it go to sleep. Ok, that was easy enough, or so I thought. He waited a few minutes and then re-applied the medicine. It was at this point she started to shudder or shake. Something I would do at a moments notice, hard to believe I gave birth so bravely sometimes. But there is just this thing about the dentist office, and the drilling, and the fillings,...well I have wondered away from our story. So next she was outfitted with a special mask used to inhale that concoction of Nitrous Oxide/Oxygen gas. Now she became quite relaxed in about three minutes.
Ligh explained what would happen, that she would feel a little pinch, and that was that. She did not move or cry or anything. The best part of the procedure thus far was her being so relaxed.
