Today marks the end of Phase 1 of Phase 1 - extractions. Last week Dr. Bill the dentist removed one of her eyeteeth which was already loose, and one of her canines that still had a half inch long root! I almost lost it. She was a total trooper. Not even a whimper. She walked out of his office smiling around the bloody gauze hanging out of her mouth for her trip to the treasure box. Today was more of the same, although I handled it better this time by looking out the window instead. Today a top front tooth and her other bottom canine came out. The carbocaine they gave her in her upper lip caused it to really swell and for a while there she looked like she was sprouting a beak. She thought it was HILARIOUS! 5 minutes later she had another mouthful of bloody gauze and skipped to the treasure box. The next phase of Phase 1 starts next week where her orthodontist will place spacers in to preserve the spaces created by the extractions.
