One of those little details that most people take for granted is taking children to get their teeth cleaned. With most children, it is a simple, if not pleasant, process. Make the appointment, explain what goes on (when they can understand), and go. Well, some conditions complicate that. My daughter is going for a cleaning and to have her teeth sealed, as well as to have them thoroughly examined. The complication is that to do this, it is necessary to anesthetize her. So, this procedure will be done at the hospital. This is one of those situations that I was completely unprepared for with motherhood.
At least we have good medical insurance. That’s all I can say – this is NOT inexpensive. Sigh.
