Tomorrow I will be getting a tooth pulled will I be able to go to work that afternoon. I sit on a bus and monitor the students. Wasn't sure if the con?

Yes, probably: There should be no problem, especially since you'll be seated at work; but you'll need to be awake & alert. Let your dentist know what your work responsibilities are, & allow more time to be sure there is no prolonged bleeding, or faintness/lightheadedness or pain issues. You should be ok after that. Hope that helps. ...Read more

She : She can keep wiggling it with her fingers. Some of our little patients also have been encouraged to eat more thjan their share of apples. Not cut up, bite into them & have had some success in speeding up the process. But sometimes, you just can't do anything to control mother nature. Have patience, it will happen. ...Read more

Socialization: It is developmentally good for most children to attend preschool around 3--the age that they can begin to understand concepts like "sharing" , "taking turns", personal space, & negotiating the social world. If you have a large family or lots of neighbor kids, you can teach the same concepts (with close supervision!) for academic success in kindergarten, start preschool by 4. ...Read more

How long will i need to watch or monitor my daughter brushing her teeth? My daughter turned six, and i think she's now able and ready to brush her teeth on her own. I want to be there to watch while she does it for a while to make sure she's doing it righ

How long will i need to watch or monitor my daughter brushing her teeth? My daughter turned six, and i think she's now able and ready to brush her teeth on her own. I want to be there to watch while she does it for a while to make sure she's doing it righ

I : I don't think one can put a specific time as to when a child is responsible enough to brush their teeth adequately. Every child matures at a different pace. How do you feel about the job your daughter is doing? Does she take at least a minute to complete her routine, or does she take 10 seconds? I would monitor her (possibly from a short distance) to see how well she does it. Most children want to please their parents and don't want to be reprimanded. When you bring her for her check ups, what does her dentist say? How clean are her teeth? That may give you more insight as to how well she is doing. ...Read more

Why do babies go to a separate place when being born for shots?Nd is not because the mother can't handle it when a few weeks u watch your baby get shots

Why do babies go to a separate place when being born for shots?Nd is not because the mother can't handle it when a few weeks u watch your baby get shots

No good reason: Your pediatrician may prefer to examine and treat the baby elsewhere. But, you are the mother! if you don't want the baby to leave you to get shots, you have every right to tell them that you want your baby to stay with you. Having surgery, or having to go to the intensive care unit is really the only reason your baby would need to leave your side. ...Read more

Can anyone help me to get my seven year old to start flossing his teeth? I feel like he's certainly ready to begin flossing on his own, but he refuses to try. Is there anything that can be done to make learning how to floss on their own more enjoyable for

I : I had a couple of thoughts in addition to dr. Mcleod's recommendations. There is a book called "brush, floss and rinse" for preschool to grade 1. That might help to stimulate his interest. Play doh now has a "doctor drill n fill playset" that allows the child to play dentist. It looks very fun and might help soften his views on not helping with his own oral care. ...Read more

Need more tests,,: Your SGOT and SGPT are elevated, but not real high, but your lymphocytes are high and shouldn't be more than half of your 100 cell white cell count and your total WBC count went down. You could be fighting a viral infection, which would explain your high lymphocyte count or you might have a blood disorder or autoimmune issue so see your doctor for more tests/blood smears to find out.
