My 4 year old needs some minor dental work done. She has 8 small cavities (dentist's words, not mine). You know the space between the two top front teeth? She has one there, one on the tooth next to it, and some between her back molars. We aren't flossing well enough at all. I am definitely going to get the molars done..she'll have those teeth till she is 10-12. But the front teeth? Those four front teeth? They are small cavities now, and even if they get worse (and I know they will) but at worst, she will lose those teeth in two years. I want to do the monitor and see approach instead of filling them right now. That's what we did with my older daughter (different dentist) and of course hers was 5 years ago- now it seems that they never do a "wait and see" anymore. My older daughter's tooth ended up falling out, and we didn't need to spend the $100 (per tooth) to do a fix for a few years. WWYD? Anyone else deal with this? Obviously..I am fixing the molar cavities..that's going to be about $500- I am thinking of skipping the other $500 of work and just monitoring it every 6 months, instead. Of course, my dentist doesn't agree to that. Ugh.
