Roweyn's Second Trip to the Dentist

So Wednesday morning, Roweyn took her 2nd trip to the Dentist for a check up. I was definitely nervous because she has changed SO much since the first time she went just barely a year ago. She did amazing the first time, but she's gotten so much more aware of her surroundings and very aware of people she doesn't know, so I really had no idea how she'd react.

Roweyn took a short nap on the way to town which kinda surprised me since it was only 9:30 and we hadn't been up that long, but she woke up happy so I knew we were off to a good start. We spent about 10-15 minutes in the waiting room and no one else was there so we were able to wander around, spend a lot of time checking out the giant mural on the wall of the forest along with the forest animals which she pointed out and then repeated me as I named off all of them, and then she found the kids room.

We got called back and headed off to our chair, Roweyn sat on my lap and waited patiently. The Dental Assistant was quick to bring Rowe a bag of goodies with a new cup, 2 new toothbrushes and toothpaste and right afterwards the Dentist arrived. He took a look in Roweyn's mouth and she had no problem with it at all! She was so brave and sat so still! He said her teeth all look great with some spaces between the teeth which means her permanent teeth shouldn't have any issues when it's time for them to come in. He asked me if I had any concerns and I told him that her bite looked a bit funny. When she bites down, her top left "eye tooth" goes inside her lower teeth instead of on the outside which then results in her having a big gap between her front top and lower teeth. He said it's not a big deal since they're all her baby teeth and her bite will change when her top teeth start coming it. I also asked him if it had anything to do with her still having a pacifier, he said no and he would only be concerned if she was 4 or 5 and still had one and at this age it's not a big deal. *I'm not sure I've said the word "teeth" so many times before!

All in all it was another great experience and I walked away happy and knowing that I'm doing everything I can to help her have healthy clean teeth. I was so so proud of Roweyn and how great she did and she most definitely got a treat for being so good! She loves the Cliffs Kids Fruit Ropes and calls them treats which makes me happy because she's still getting something healthy and she pretty much thinks it's candy!

It's pretty much the cutest thing ever

  1. My son will not let the dentist near him. He hasn't had a proper check up because they want to sedate him and I don't feel comfortable with that even if he is four now. Thats so awesome that your daughter was a boss at the dentist!
