Advice about Oral Surgery
My 9-y.o. daughter is, unfortunately, a veteran of many dental procedures (extractions, fillings, etc). We like and trust our most recent dentist (Katsura, Khalil, etc.), although they seem a little too busy sometimes.
We've been referred to the oral surgeon for a new problem: two baby molars that are not falling out. Loose on one side only for many months, ''bone impacted?'' the permanent tooth is trying to come in. There are recommendations for the oral surgeon already on the site, and I feel comfortable with the referral.
My question is, have other people gone through this procedure? I have yet to talk to the oral surgeon, but I plan to ask about anesthesia, pain, spacing of the teeth after the procedure. Are there other things I should ask? Things I should tell my daughter? (I try to tell her as much as I can). I told her that we're in good hands because this is what oral surgeons do and they're good at it, but I'm actually a little scared. Thanks!
