Get a 2nd opinion NOW! I worked in the dental/ortho field for 5 years and pulling deciduous (baby) teeth is a very outdated pprocedure. Ask for other options available, even if your insurance doesn't cover them 100%. Going to another dentist or specialist may offer a better choice for your baby. These teeth ahve a purpose, which is to hold space for the adult teeth that are barely forming in the gums. A good doctor will review the full mouth x-rays with you too! Good Luck
