He injected her gum to make it numb. It was very easy to pull out the loose tooth but I saw him twist and twist with the other one. Although XY didn't feel the pain but I think she can feel the tug so she was going "nggg... nggg..." with her mouth wide open. But I'd say she was very brave throughout the procedure. The dentist asked her to close her eyes but she kept them opened. I was so afraid she'd freak out when she saw the needle or the forceps. The only thing she hated was biting the gauze to stop the bleeding after the extraction. She said it tasted funny. :D

Note : Dr L explained that when the permanent tooth pushes out the baby tooth (making it loose), it'll dissolve the roots. Thus the loose tooth doesn't have roots.
She's put the two teeth under her pillow, waiting for the tooth fairy to give her some 'change' (coins). hehehe

If you look carefully, there are some red/orange patches on her chin. Here's a clearer view...
Yikes! That looks horrible huh. The skin specialist said it's ulcer, some kind of bacterial infection (not known to be contagious though). A week ago, it was just a patch in the middle. We thought she scratched her skin so didn't bother about it till it spread to her whole chin. It doesn't look "normal" so I brought her to consult the doctor. Doctor prescribed a cream (name cannot be given coz that's the clinic's policy) to apply and oral antibiotics (Amoxil). I think the medicines are working as the patches are drying up. Hopefully it'll continue to heal fast and not leave any scars.
