What does the Tooth Fairy Give for a Root Canal???

not sure if anyone remembers when Lanie chipped her front tooth in December...




Well she ended up getting a cap in january and it has bugged her ever since... the past week and a half she has been complaining every day about the tooth and saying different things hurt it and I think she was pressing on it because it made her gum line red all around it.

Well anyway she has been afraid to go to the dentist ever since the first time we went to fix it in December so it was giving ME anxiety to even take her in to see him =( anyway I took her in yesterday and he basically told me she needed a root canal and I wanted to cry. So we went ahead and tried doing it without the laughing gas but she is just too nervous anymore... She was kicking and screaming and flopping around, so the gas she got! =( (I asked the dentist to give ME some of the gas! I was about to cry seeing her so afraid and in pain) once she took a few deep breathes of the gas things went very quickly and they finished it all up. She was freaked out about not being able to feel her lips and gums for the longest time but on the way home she wanted to stop and eat already so we went to Noodles. (her fave) By around 9pm she was running around laughing and I asked her if the tooth hurt anymore and she said with a smile, NOPE!!

I am so happy it does not bother her anymore but I think she is going to hate going to the dentist for the rest of her life and that makes me sad....

on a funny note: the other 3 kids had been sitting in the waiting room and they could hear her screaming so they were sad and frightened for her. Martie said she never wanted to go back to that dentist again and I so i told her the screaming wasn't Lanie, it was me looking at the bill.... it made everyone laugh including Lanie LOL

UPDATE: She is all smiles today and says she is so happy her tooth doesn't hurt anymore!
