I’ve been worried about an orthodontic issue with Momo. It’s caused by my DNA. Even though the Japanese don’t care so much about their dental issues, I’ve hated my teeth, and hesitated to grin since I was bullied about it by a boy. Momo has a so cute smile! I don’t want her to feel same as me. To take care their teeth not only for cavities but for health or beauty become more common in Japan too these days. Fortunately, I was introduced a very good doctor who learned the orthodontic skill in the US by one of my friend whose daughter has the same problem as Momo.
Yesterday, we visited the doctor and Momo was examined a lot before starting her actual treatment. She did it well. Before leaving the room, the doctor recommended us to pull off her baby front under tooth which had been shaky and almost drop. We agreed. Then we could see his magical technique! He said “Momo, I will pull off your tooth and that tooth will come out from your nose, OK? So, when I say ‘GO!’ , you blow your nose as hard as you can, right? ” Then he pinched Momo’s nose with his left hand.
“Aaaaand…GO!” Momo did blow her nose hard with a very serious face.
Actually, or as you know, he pulled off the tooth with his right hand, and then shifted it to his finger of the left hand. BUT It was incredibly quick! I couldn’t see it! It’s like a real magic!
Momo was completely stunned.
Then she started laughing ! I know that she could do nothing but laugh! It was so wonderful (as literary for her) and great moment. I thanked him to give her this special memory because that is the first baby tooth she lost ever. He also gave her a small box to keep it.
I hope she would like this clinic and keep having treatment until she got a big cute smile!
And she still believes that tric was real!!
私も、ももも、一瞬、ヘッ？ 状態だった。 いや～久しぶりに感動した（笑）
I’ve been concerned about AZ in Arizona. Are you OK? The news of the sand storm was aired in Japan too and I was scared. I even didn’t know that such a huge sand storm can exist!! I hope you are fine, and I’m so sorry.
