It’s like the cruelest thing. As if brushing teeth wasn’t unappealing enough, I can tell it’s very painful for Ali where her cavity is. She cries whenever we get ready to brush, then calms down and is okay until I hit the spot. And she SCREAMS. And it kills me. I know the whole area isn’t getting brushed well because her lips are like steel doors closing and that doesn’t help the situation. I feel frustrated because it’s over a month until her consultation, not even the actual procedure! That is unscheduled so who knows when that will be. In the meantime, she’s developing an incredible aversion to tooth brushing. And it seems so avoidable. Poor kid should not have to be in pain.
