I took my kid to the dentist and she had a cavity.
(Not my child’s mouth, but wow, hey?)
I felt like such a bad parent, like the dentist and hygienist mentally tossed me into the Slacker Mom category and there was no escape.
Thankfully the cavity was small and caught early so they were able to fill it without even needing to use any anesthetic. It was a positive experience overall, but it still makes me feel like a bit of a failure.
Are you really diligent in caring for your kids’ teeth? Do some of them still seem to get cavities regardless of how often they brush?
