Recently, I noticed 2 permanent teeth sprouted out on YX's bottom front with his baby teeth still intact. To make matter worst, the baby teeth weren't shaky at all. I was afraid the permanent teeth will not grow properly if the baby teeth does not give way to them. So, I told my boy that I will have to bring him to the dentist to extract the baby teeth so the new teeth have space to grow.
As a very timid boy, he quickly protest. I talked to him for a few days until one day, I promised to bring him to a stationary shop and he can choose something (which have to be approved by me) as a reward after the dentist visits.

He agreed and off we went. He cooperates with me, holding my hand and we walked into the dentist room without any problem. He sits on the chair and opens his mouth as wide as possible for the dentist to check his teeth.
Since his baby teeth were not shaking yet, the dentist advised me to bring him back in another 2 - 3 weeks time. Once it is shaky, the extraction will be easier. Otherwise, injections will be required in order to extract the teeth. I rejected the injections as I doesn't want to scare him his entire life of visiting a dentist.
