A trip to the Dentist

Warning: Not for the squeamish!


Annabel went to the dentist today to have four teeth pulled. She was a trooper, because I know she was terrified about going.



This is the last view of her pretty smile with all her teeth.



This is the anxious, let's-get-it-over look.

Enjoying the laughing gas.

Several hours later, after the gauze packing has come out and the pain is gone.


The tooth fairy better be generous tonight.

Annabel wants me to point out the cavity that the dentist wasn't aware existed.

Ahhhhhhhh! You weren't kidding. Those suckers are massive!

All the pictures of her would not load, so I didn't get to see the before, but since I had the same four teeth removed when I was about her age, I have great empathy!

Annabel, you are so tough and brave. Are you rich now?
Deb, I could only see the pictures of Annabel waiting to get it overwith and the teeth which were sickening. Poor baby,why so many teeth? Were they all permanent teeth? Small mouth, big teeth. Mom made it sound like it was because of her bad genes. I think Siena will have to have teeth removed, too.
