|so excited to be at the dentist!|
We had very little wait time, the appointment itself was quick & painless (yay!) and K did surprisingly well!! They have TV's up in the ceiling to look at while reclined, with little headphones so they can *try* to zone out to cartoons, while having their teeth looked at & cleaned. They also have sunglasses so the bright light won't bother them...but she wanted nothing to do with those!
I was worried she would kinda freak over the electric tooth polisher device, but she actually giggled because it tickled a bit. She sat patiently through the whole thing. I think she was also comforted by being told what each item was they needed to use & why.... she especially loved the water/suction tools!!
We're happy to report...NO cavities...yippee! However, we did discover that she is completely missing one full tooth!! It's her left (or right if looking at her teeth) "lateral incisor" - so there's a bit extra room/gaps for her top front teeth. Not a huge deal, hopefully once her baby teeth fall out, the adult 'incisor' will actually come in. It appears to be hereditary, as James was missing his as a toddler too...but now has a mini or 'peg' incisor on his left side as well. Too funny!
THIS post in August. Geeeez we lag.
Anyway...she was super excited to get a goodie bag at the end for doing so well - she got to choose her own new toothbrush & toothpaste (Dora), sticker (Princess Tiana) and temp. tattoo (Sponge Bob) - then with the special coin she got, she was able to choose from a bunch of little toy dispensers...she got a bouncy ball.
I'm a fan of this place and more importantly, so is Kapri...we'll be going back for as long as they are under my insurance umbrella!
