Vanity Overcomes Pain....

MY GIRL is a "nagger"... nagging me to take her to the dental surgeon..... believe it or not???
Who likes to go to the dentist? Lift up your hands.... (100% no hands lifted) ... Who would like to go UNLESS really no choice, no more alternative, right?

Ok to cut this morning's incident short, we went to see the orthodontist, after doing X-rays on her teeth, 2 of her teeth need to be pulled out to make way for her braces for her upper gum...asked us to go back and consider first but my girl said no need to think over, she is adamant, she wanted it done there and then.....

I really admire her guts, her courage, her determination and I stood at the corner, watching the ordeal, my ordeal... oh gosh.. I was so nervous, I couldn't bear to watch him pull out my precious girl's good teeth, I felt the pain...arrrghhh..... my heart aches till now... but alas, no turning back, its too late now..


making herself comfortable while waiting for the doc


anyone want to bid for these 2 "pearls"??

With her mouth bloody, she can still smile.... no regrets? No... no.... In fact, she is looking forward to next week when she can have her braces on.... (is it vanity or what)
As for the 2 "pearls", she intends to give to her Big Bro as a Christmas gift.... shhhh..shhhhhhhh

  4. It's rather obvious that vanity rules the day. I bet she's doing it to impress her friends; nobody likes dentists. :)

  5. Oh, why not let her leave her 2 pearls under her pillow for the tooth fairy to take while she's asleep in exchange for a gift? hehehe. just some superstitious belief...

  6. is she doing a crown or implant then, as she has lost two teeths? well, i was not that fearful of dentist until 2 years ago when i had a bad tooth and needed to be plucked out. It's still ok but the bleeding didn;t stop after that till night. Then, I remember i make so many visits to the dentist to make a 'bridge', sort like a permanent false tooth. I never been to the dentist since...haha..already phobia!

  20. I had two of my good teeth pulled out too. It wasn't painful at all and I'm glad I did it for the braces. I think my teeth looks so much better after wearing braces.
