The boys had their first professional teeth cleaning yesterday!
Bubba did really well. He's been to the dentist but not to have his teeth cleaned. He stopped her a couple times and kept telling us he just wanted to see the Dentist. It was really funny and the Hygienist was amazingly patient!
He has a hard time with stuff in his mouth and kept pushing her away but over all he did a great job!
As a reward she let him "play" with all the stuff
Bear has never, ever been to the dentist and he was not quite sure about it. He watched Bubba get his teeth cleaned but wasn't sure he wanted a turn so I had to sit with him.
This was as far as we got. She showed him everything but then he wouldn't open his mouth for her to clean his teeth. So we'll try again later.
Bubba was so excited to see Dr. Dent, and when the hygienist told him that Dr Dent was busy and another dentist would come look at his teeth...it didn't go well.
So... Because we have an AMAZING Dentist, he took 10 mins to come see Bubba. The minute he walked in Bubba was so excited and proceeded to tell him everything that he had done in the past 3 weeks! He laid right down on the chair before the dentist could even get his gloves on!
Bear even let him take a peek!
Because Bear did such a good job (given his age and that it was his first time) they gave him a pair of gloves, which he put on all by himself...
and then wouldn't take off....
All in all it was a mostly successful trip to the Dentist. I'm super happy with this office and it's staff! Isaac tripped and fell, knocking his 4 front teeth loose, so we are on soft foods for the next 2 weeks *sigh*
Love a life with boys!
