Today was big day for my Gracie Girl! She made her first trip to the dentist! She was super excited and couldn't wait to go! I choose a dentist that was close to our house and specialized in pediatric dentistry so it was super cute and comfortable. She hopped in the chair as soon as we got there.
The hygenist said that she was going to clean her teeth. So she did. Gracie did great with the sucky thing too. She was a pro. Gracie sat very still and did what the hygenist said. They didn't mind me taking pictures either. After cleaning, they flossed her teeth too. That's something I do not do so I better get on that. I barely floss my own teeth! Ha! Oh, I almost forgot about the magic glasses she got to wear so stuff wasn't spraying in her eyes. She got sparkly pink Dora ones. And for being such a good girl, she got to pick 3 prizes from the prize drawer! Oh by the way, she even cooperated for x-rays! Then dentist Dr. Tom came in and counted her teeth and checked them out. He spot some cavities due to using bottles/sippy cups so we have to go back for a consultation next week about getting them filled. Great! That made me feel like an awesome mom. First time at the dentist and she has cavities. We brush our teeth everyday twice a day. They assured me that they see this a lot and told me what we can do to prevent this from happening more. We need to work on using "big girl" toothpaste too. She needs the flouride so we got to work on this spitting thing. They also told me she already has a big overbite so be prepared for orthodontic work in the future. Awesome. So we'll say how it goes next time. I am just so proud of my little girl and that she did so well.
