Today I took Kassidy, Kameron and Kennedy to the dentist for a check up and cleaning. Once I got there they asked if I wanted to have Keeghan looked at too. He's never been, they usually start at age 2, but he's close and this way they'll all be on the same schedule.
Kassidy got x-rays this time and her cleaning. Kameron just got his cleaning. They both do great and I don't go back with them anymore. I do go back with Kennedy though and it's a good thing I did! She has never had any problems before but this time she freaked out when we tried to lay her down. I couldn't figure it out and then it finally dawned on me that she thought the lights above the chair was a CT machine! Her dreaded enemy! We showed her what the light did... no spinning, no noise, she wouldn't be trapped and she calmed down and did GREAT after that! Oh and she has a loose tooth which is crazy to me! She didn't get her first tooth until 19 months old and it was a molar, so I was surprised when they said one of her bottom front ones is loose already! I don't think I'm ready for her to start losing teeth!
While they were cleaning her teeth, Keeghan fell asleep in the stroller. When she was done they woke him up and he was NOT happy! Poor guy! He screamed for the entire exam but that meant he wasn't biting their dentist so I guess it worked out.
Anyway, NO cavities for any of them!!! YAY!!! The sealants they put on Kass' back teeth last time have come off already. They said she will need those teeth crowned eventually... something with the enamel being too weak (???). In the meantime we have a special toothpaste with extra fluoride to use once a day to help back there. SO all that to say, I'm so glad the kids don't have problems with cavities like I did as a kid! :) YAY for 6 more months down! :)
