About 5 months ago my almost 5 year old son had to go under general anesthesia to have 7 of his molars capped with stainless steel crowns and one pulled due to an abscess. That day was the hardest day of my life for many reasons. It is beyond scary to put your baby's life in someone else's hands and what's worse is feeling like your the reason he is there in the first place . I can't come to terms with how it is possibl my son ended up with so much decay in his teeth?? Did I not brush his teeth good enough ? I shouldn't of listen to all the hype on how fluoride is bad and just given it to my son. He is a picky eater, I should of been tougher about getting him to eat more things. Did his acid reflux as a infant /toddler of played a role. These are just a few things that run through my head everyday. Everyday I see my gorgeous son smile and see all the metal. Makes me question how good of a mom I am. Makes me scared, scared of any future problems with his teeth. Makes me upset how others parents and kids may look at us.. If there are any other moms who have been thru similar experience I would love to hear your stories. I need to come to terms with this and p strong for my son.
