The visit started off rocky as the first order of business was to try and get some X-rays. London had no qualms about getting into the chair, but as soon as the heavy lead vest was placed on her, London started to get worried.
It then took a lot of coaxing to get her to bite down on the film long enough to take the two X-rays. The poor attendant actually had to stand in there with her - without a vest - to get each picture.
Last visit, London wouldn't even get in the chair for the dentist. This time, she jumped into the cleaning chair and even started out with the sunglasses and headphones on to listen to the movie playing above. The sunglasses and earphones lasted all of 30 seconds.
I can't remember, but I don't even think they wee able to clean London's teeth with the drills last time. This time London made it through with her vanilla-flavored toothpaste mix while she held on to her daddy's hand. She even handled the water cleaner and suctioner well.
Everything looked pretty good. There was a small concern about one front tooth in that it might have been bumped and could cause an issue or infected area so we have to go back in 3 months for another x-ray just to make sure everything is alright. In the meantime, our homework is to continue the evening brushing routine with fluoride-based toothpaste and introduce flossing some, just to build the habit, as London's teeth have great spacing and don't technically need to be flossed yet. She has 20 beautiful teeth currently and on the X-rays would could see the adult teeth in front developing nicely, though the sight of them freaked me out some. They looked like they were right there, getting ready to loosen those baby teeth any day. The dentist assured me we have 2 to 3 years before I need to worry about Tooth Fairy visits.
