Your daughter was traumatized by the loss of those teeth, and she may now need to talk things out with a therapist so she can move on. It is a shame that this could have been prevented if she was seen regularly by a dentist. Now it is time for her to accept responsibility of maintaining her remaining teeth to prevent further loss. All the best...
