My daughter needs a wisdom tooth extraction

Much to her dismay, my teenage daughter is going to be needing a wisdom tooth extraction done really soon.

She has been dreading this for a while now, because she really hates going to the dentist. She doesn’t even like going to the dentist office to get a teeth cleaning done once a year. She would rather stay at home and do just about anything than go to the dentist with me. I keep telling her that family dental care is very important and she always needs to come with us whenever we go to the dentist. She has told me that she wants to get invisible braces, yet she does not want to go to the dentist to get fitted for the braces! She said she would just send the dental office a picture of her teeth. I told her that that doesn’t make any sense at all and there is no way that that is going to work. She always complains about the fact that she has sensitive teeth, but I don’t even know if that is true or not. I think she is actually just sensitive! I would not mind paying for her to get invisible braces, but she is going to have to actually go into the dentist office and do all of the orthodontics appointments. I told her that if she doesn’t agree to doing that, then I am not going to pay for the invisible braces at all. Once she realizes how much invisible braces cost, I think she’s gonna be way more likely to go to the dentist when I ask her to.
