Mommy The Dentist

XY's upper right central incisor had been loose for quite awhile already. A few days ago, she showed me her very loose tooth. On Friday afternoon, she came to me crying and there was blood on her finger. She said she knocked her mouth on didi's head and I saw blood at the gum around that loose tooth. While trying to wipe off the blood in her mouth with tissue paper, I just pulled out that tooth, without telling her first. It came out at my second try. She was still crying. I doubt it was due to pain. Must be because she panicked when she saw blood earlier. Then didi started crying and asked me not to pull out jie jie's tooth. hahaha Since when my boy became so "drama" one? Later jie jie told me it just hurt a little when I pulled it out. After that it was not painful anymore. Then I let her bite a gauze to stop the bleeding. 1 gauze was enough.

~ the bloody gauze ~

She was very excited as she knew she'll be getting a little something from the tooth fairy at night. She asked for a plastic bag to keep her little tooth and happily put in under her pillow at bedtime. The "tooth fairy" couldn't find the plastic bag in the dark and didn't want to disturb her sleep. So the "tooth fairy" just left the coin there without taking the tooth. As expected, XY was satisfied with her 50 sen reward. But she asked me how come the tooth fairy didn't take the tooth away. I think I mumbled something like, "Oh really? Never mind lah. Just give it to me." coz I was still sleepy. hahaha

She's been a really brave girl and never gave me any problems when it comes to dental care and dentist encounters. I hope didi will be the same too. Haven't brought him for a check-up before. Maybe I'll start psyching him and bring him before the holiday's over.

You are so GENG, your girl can really endure pain while you plucking her tooth.

Instead of waiting for the tooth fairy, my mum actually told us to chuck the tooth out from the window so that it will grow back again. The tooth fairy method is certainly more interesting for kids!^-^

Have a nice day ahead!

Mummy Gwen said...

Hehe...Didi's reaction was so cute. :) You are very brave lah...I don't think I can bring myself to pull out the shaky tooth. Also, jie jie was brave too to endure the "kan cheong" episode.

buy a kiddie book about dentist and check-ups first?
Think that's what I did... and the first check-up was pretty easy. You need to go to a "child-friendly" dentist. He counted the kids teeth like a game etc etc. So boys were never afraid of dentist like I was. Even when my kids had funny teeth that grew out of the middle of the palate and had to be extracted, it was mommy that was more afraid!!

Mummy so geng, become dentist somemore..

Priscilla said...

Good move mummy dentist! i can never persuade them to let me pull even though sooo lose already!

Oliveoylz said...

You should have studied dentistry! Very brave of you! Several times over the years, my boy requested me to yank his shaky tooth out, but I never succeeded. My knees go weak after rotating the tooth several times. hahah.

When it comes to Chloe's dental care, I can only floss and brush her teeth for her. Teeth extraction, I will definitely fail big time haha. I will freak out first before she does! I salute you for your courage :)

My mom used to do the same thing to me when I was a kid.
And after few observation from how my mom did it, I tried it myself and it worked! I was able to pull out the teeth all by myself!
