It has taken me about 3 days to even be able to write this as I have just been sooo upset about this. My dd is 6 and has always had dental problems. Meaning cavities and thin enamel on her teeth. Her dentist has always said that genetically she just has bad teeth. Well long story short, her dentist passed away and we have been searching for a new dentist. During this time, she lost 2 fillings (I am not sure why or how, but it happened.) I took her in to a pediatric dentist on Monday.. they said that she needs about $2,400 in work done including extracting 2 teeth (the 2 that the fillings were lost on) and placing metal spacers that cement to the roof of her mouth since the teeth are scheduled to be lost at 10-11 and 12 years of age. crowning another tooth, and more cavities.. I am devastated. She will flip out if I let them cement a metal appliance to her mouth! She is so sensitive about things like that I mean she wigs out if there is a wrinkle in her sock!! What do I do? I am getting a second opinion, but 2 of the 3 dentists that I called wouldn't even see her and both said that for that extensive work she needs to be seen by a pediatric dentist and recommened the place that I originally took her to..
