"Hospital waiting list for children's tooth extraction"
Posted by steves2 (as ),
There is 16 to 18 weeks waiting list for my 6 year old grand daughter who has already suffered tooth ache on and off for 6 weeks to have 2 molars with abscesses extracted under general anesthetic.
Our Dentist says he can take the teeth out but feels she is too young for a local anesthetic for 2 molars to be extracted. I also rang 111 they also advised to go to hospital and have a general anesthetic
My grand daughter has missed at least 2 days from school already, we have taken pain killer up to school for her, and today we brought her out of her xmas pantomime due to pain.
NHS appear to be lacking resources in this area.
