Well I knew we had problems, I could see the decay. We started brushing late with our speech delayed/borderline autistic (mostly behavioral probs and speec delay) 3 almost 4yr dd.<br><br>
It's brutal to brush, doc visit, etc. Anything that is forced on her is never good... She is super strong willed and the harder we try , the worse usually~we get things done the best w/ comprise. love and patience.<br><br>
Anyway~she's got major decay in two molars~bordering absess. 6 other cavities and a nerve damaged, near dead front tooth. Sound so bad... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
So to make this shorter than its turning out to be~ the only way I can see this actually getting fixed is thru gen. anethesia (which of course dentist agreed, since we could barely get her to open mouth).<br><br>
I feel so horrible, like this is my fault, probably is. We are a no vax, homebirthin, no doc unless totally neccesary family. and i can't imagine putting her "under". Completley freaks us out, but won't the longterm be worse?<br><br>
Okay so, let me have it...from all ends of the spectrum.. Im prepared, but major stressed so go easy , it's getting late!
