First Dentist Trip

1 Comment


So today we went to the dentist as a family this afternoon.  It was the boys’ very first time sitting in the chair!  We’re all cavity free here (yay hooray!) and they took xrays of Butterfly’s teeth.  You can TOTALLY see all her permanent teeth coming in under her baby teeth.  That was amazing to see!  I wish I had gotten a picture of that.  We’re betting her bottom teeth will fall out before her top ones.  Anyone got any money to back that up?

Pirate did sort of okay.  I had to hold his hand the whole time and the dentist couldn’t count his teeth.  But he did agree to be brushed and they counted then.  20 teeth!  The dentist got a quick peek before he got totally fed up with the process.  He’s got a small chip on his front tooth, but nothing to worry about.

Professor agreed to have his teeth counted and was super excited when he got to hold the mirror. But then the hygenist showed him the tool she was going to use and he shut his mouth and would barely open after. I had to kind of hold his mouth open for the brushing and the checking. He’s our binkie baby and boy is it starting to show on his teeth! He’s still got a ton of space between his teeth so they aren’t really that worried about it now.

A pretty good report, and all without naps!
