When I was younger, my mother did not take me to see a pediatric dentist. This resulted in numerous cavities that actually grew deep enough that they destroyed the permanent teeth that were still forming in my mouth. The lack of care resulted in numerous dental procedures as I grew older. Several of my teeth needed to be pulled and I had to deal with a great deal of pain.
