Tooth Filling

It is exam week these two weeks in Ethan’s school. They are having their mid-term exam. The children have to sit for exams THREE times a year in his school. It was only TWICE last year but since they got a new Principal, things have changed. 

This morning out of a sudden, Ethan told us he is having a toothache. We never thought much about it as he just got his teeth filled about a year ago and the dentist said that it should last for at least a couple of years or more BUT when Darling took a torchlight to check, to his surprise, he saw a cavity right there on the filling. We asked Ethan if he can go through his exam papers today and he said yes. After school, we quickly took him to the dentist. 

Let me tell you a little bit about Ethan at the dentist last year. The first time he went to the dentist was to get his milk tooth extracted. He was okay with that. Later on we found cavities and send him to get the fillings done and he was not so good with that. He got scared of the drilling sound and started to get defensive, refusing to let the dentist do her job. She had to rush through while I held onto his hand to calm him down. It was also because the dentist touched a raw nerve while cleaning his badly decayed tooth that all hell break lose. He had phobia of going to the dentist from then on.

I had to prep him, giving positive thoughts and encouragement for him to go through this.

Ethan at the dentist

Ethan, still not trusting dentist but being a good boy for fear that his cavities will get worse and he will feel more pain. 


Grimacing in pain. LoL. Nah.. Surprisingly he was OKAY today. Very well behaved and sat through it all without a fight. That face you see was because the helper used that suction thingy to suck the saliva and the sound got Ethan startled a little. Haha.

The dentist found two cavities so Ethan had two fillings done.

He is all good now. The bill came to a total of RM105 for two fillings. Boy you better brush your teeth thoroughly and take good care of your teeth now. Dental care doesn’t come cheap these days.
