Hi. I'm 13 and have one final baby tooth that needs to come out, as an permanent tooth has been exposed and can't grow in properly. It is slightly wobbly, but It is hard to wiggle it because it has shifted back up into my gum. My dentist (who is a nice lady one, much nicer than the one I had before but I'm still a bit uneasy) told me in February that I would have to come back on May 1st to get it extracted if it didn't fall out on its own. She also warned me that my bottom left molar is sticky, and I should clean it harder. This is hard, as this tooth makes me gag when I try to clean it. I (think) I do a relatively good job but it never feels completely clean, so this has made me feel scared as well. I know it won't kill me but I'm petrified that it will be painful. At this point I wish I didn't have to get braces, which is one of the main reasons why this extraction has to happen!
