Took Cason to the dentist who said he does not normally pressure kids who are fearful. Well, Cason is fearful. Unfortunately, the dentist saw a spot on one of Cason's molars and felt he really need to check it to make sure it wasn't a cavity, which I totally understand.
Basically Cason was not having it and ended up basically having to be physically restrained with a clamp in his mouth to keep it open while the dentist checked the spot. The whole time Cason was screaming bloody murder.
Well, now, I can't get him to let me brush his teeth on that side the dentist poked around on. It has been getting worse. He clamps his mouth shut when I get to that part and then ultimately starts crying or has a tantrum about it. I have tried to reason with him that we have to brush so he doesn't have to go back to the dentist anytime soon, but he is not grasping that. Anybody have anything like this happen?
