***Update: After only putting the little mirror in Valérie's mouth and $39 later, the dentist told my husband that she had lost the cap on her tooth (which was what I thought) and that he didn't do that as an on call dentist. "Here a prescription so she doesn't feel pain anymore, and wait for your dentist to come back from her vacation". Wow! I was surprise. I though that he was there to fix thing. He knew that my dentist was on vacation until August 6th. I will try to reach a dentist Monday. Hopefully I can get it fix before it gets worst. We are leaving on vacation for a week on Friday. ***
My oldest, Valérie, came to me, crying, yesterday telling me that one of her tooth hurt so bad L I ask how long it has been hurting? She told me it has been “a lot of days” but she didn’t want to tell me because she was scare that I would be mad at her. Poor thing! (You would think that I was a mean mom lol) I checked her tooth and could see that it was the same one that the dentist fixed when she was 3 or 4 (can’t remember). The dentist had put a cap on, as the tooth had crack. I’m guessing that maybe the cap is not on the tooth anymore and that is why she is in pain.
Have you ever try calling your dentist or any dentist on a Friday and in July? I haven’t until yesterday, noon! WOW! What a job. Call my dentist first. The office is close for vacations until August 6th. Then I proceed to call at least 10 more. On the 10, 8 were on vacations until the second week of August and 2 were close on Friday. This mom was starting to panic. I wanted my daughter’s pain to stop like yesterday. Finally, I posted something on my status on Facebook. A friend of my told me you could get information for a dentist on call from the hospital. So I call the front desk and was given the number. I proceed to call the on-call number. The receptionist told me that the dentist would call me back within 24 hours, but that because it was 1pm it should be today. He did call back, but it was the longest 3 hours of my life!!! At least, Valérie wasn’t in pain anymore. I had given her Advil to help.
We have an appointment at 11:30 this morning. Hopefully, all will go well. I really hope that it is a great dentist, as Valérie loves going to the dentist and I wouldn`t want her to get a bad experience. My husband is going with her as he is able to stay calm. I, on the other hand will cry with her if she cries and I am honestly scare of dentist. So I don’t go with the kids so they won’t know it lol.
I’ll update my post later on tonight to let you know how it went.
