First trip to the Dentist

Pea had his first visit to the dentist yesterday. Both he and Princess had an appointment yesterday. Princess had to go first because Pea has a slight heart murmur, and the techs had to call his pediatrician's office about it. Pea and I played while she got her teeth cleaned. She is such an old pro at going to the dentist - so good at it. She's even had 4 x-rays and does excellent with that too. She had an accident where she fell off of a couch and hit her mouth, which caused some damage to the roots of her front top teeth, so the dentist uses x-rays to check to see how it is progressing. So far so good at this point. I hope she doesn't have any permanent damage with her permanent teeth. She has to start spitting out better when she brushes and start using fluoride toothpaste at least once a day.

Anyhow, Pea climbed up immediately and layed down like an old pro too, even before Princess, but they told him he had to go play first. So when it was his turn, he just layed down again. (For all of you English teachers - I can't remember if it should be laid or layed?) They brushed his teeth, and he did great, even when other kids were screaming! Then he got the fluoride treatment and still did great. He loves to brush at home, but now we have to floss his teach too. His teeth are spaced closer together than Princess' are.

They got their prizes - a ball (of course) for Pea and a frog for Princess, stickers, floss, and toothbrushes for each.

I'm so proud of my little dental patients!
