1st Dentist Appointment

Rachel had her 1st dental appointment today. The office was a Pediatric clinic which was such a huge hit, Hannah was asking to get her teeth cleaned and looked at. LOL. I'll probably switch dentists for Hannah and bring her here next time. Rachel did such a wonderful job. She cooperated and did what they asked, course it helped having televisions in the ceiling, playing a Disney movie. Overall, the dentist said her teeth look good. Not as many teeth in as she should have, but cleft affected toddlers can sometimes teeth slower. No Xrays taken today. Just a check up and brushing of her teeth. And of course the recommendation to come back in 6 months.

wow! you're lucky this is only your first visit. We go week after next and this will be Ethan's fourth visit to the dentist. We also have an awesome pediatric dental office. TV's and video games and loads of toys, and he's always done wonderfully.

Ethan has a tooth in his cleft. So that's always fun to brush. They're trying to save it to use in a bridge later on. But they say teeth like that decay more quickly because they're exposed to more sugars and harder to clean.

Good luck! I'm glad to hear it went so well! She's so cute, Darcy! I love her little lopsided grin! Thanks for sharing her with me! It's so encouraging!
