Why is dental work always such a point of contention between divorced parents? SD11 needs some substantial work done. 4 teeth pulled and possibly one permanent tooth. is insisting this is an emergency and needs to happen Next week. But my question is, should SD see an orthodontist before anyone starts removing permanent teeth? I am not disputing the need to have some of the baby teeth removed due to being fused to the jaw bone, but the permanent adult tooth being removed concerns me. And with that many teeth coming out at once (the kid is going to need braces. No question there) shouldn’t braces be coming shortly after such a procedure? I am always Leary of only having one dentists opinion due to having a bad dentist as a kid. And she has only been to this dentist once and this is the first time anyone has heard about bone fusion. does anyone have experience with this?
DH is going to call and discuss everything with both the dentist and the surgeon Monday because he was unable to make the mid morning appointment last week since he had to work.
Also starting sept 1 SD will have two dental insurance plans meaning the cost for all of this will be significantly less but because BM would rather be MOTY than think for a second she is refusing to wait those extra 3 days. Ugh. Why.
