So yesterday I took the girl to their first dentist appointment. Some doctors recommend taking them to see a dentist as soon as they turn 2, some say 3 yrs. old. Since Bella didn't get her first tooth until she was 15 months and still only had 4 when she turned 2 I held off on taking her. Brynn got her teeth much earlier, and I thought had them all, so I thought it was time to get them both in. I was quite nervous about it. I think my own apprehensions with the dentist were clouding my thoughts as to what the day might be like. I was especially nervous about how Brynn would react to it all. Bella is quite the cooperative young lady but Brynn can be bit of a stinker and likes things on her own terms.
Bella hopped up first and did a great job! Opening her mouth and allowing it to be sucked out when needed. She had fun picking out her flavors of things and using the princess flosser! : )
(I apologize for the picture quality- I only had my point and shoot camera)
Proudly checking out her sparkling teeth!While they were finishing up with Bella, Brynn hopped up in a chair next to her. She did great!! Opened right up, picked her flavors, let them scrub away at her teeth. She had a hard time keeping her mouth open wide enough at times but was happy to oblige when asked to open it again.
Watching it all in her mirror!
Showing off her sparkling teeth and then smiling for mommy and daddy!
They each got their picture taken and a special note from their doctor/assistants!
And I'm happy to report both girls are cavity free!
Oh and Bella has all 20 of her teeth but Brynn doesn't have her second set of molars yet so only has 16.
