* Update

His front two teeth were filled and his two fangs on either side were too decayed to save--the dentist said that after she had cleaned them out there was nothing left but a nub so they were extracted:(...She said by the looks of the two fang teeth, he was probably in some pain---oh dear--talk about feeling bad for your little one. I can only thank God, that I took him so soon to at least be able to save his front teeth and that we caught all this in time--Who takes their babies to the dentist at one??? I guess with all our teeth trouble I knew I had too---all his other teeth are just perfect-----I am so relieved this is all over---Little Kevin has to wait until tomorrow to nurse because the sucking will cause his gums to bleed. he did soooooo well--he did not cry. He sat there like a big boy and let her do the work--She was such a gentle dentist and sooo nice. He did cry at the initial start when I handed him over but after the numbing gel took effect on his gums he was done crying. That is all for now--it was quick, about 30 minutes---

She told me every night to take a q-tip and dip it in *ACT For Kids* and rub his teeth with it---so we got that and then I have to just brush extra well--since all my kids baby teeth are just prone to cavity's no matter what I do.

THANK YOU ALL for the prayers--I know they are what got Little Kevin and me through this--(((Hugs)))

I'm so glad it's over and that it went pretty well. Sorry he had to lose his little fangs, but it's certainly a good thing they're out if they were hurting the little sweetie. We use ACT also ... several of mine are prone to teeth problems, and I am absolutely convinced it's genetics!

Hugs to you ... I know it's been a hard day on your gentle "momma" heart.

Julieann, I am so glad you decided to get a second opinion and found such a caring dentist. The other guy was an idiot!
