So it's been 6 months since our last dentist appointment and it's time to go again. I'm thinking this time, it'll be time to clean her teeth. Not so much.
We had to wait about 30 minutes for our appointment. This pediatric dentist has it down to a science. They have an awesome fish tank with lots of nemo fish and starfish.
This completely occupied Violet until the appointment. Then it was our turn.
We spent about 40 minutes with the hygienist. They showed her the instruments and she got to practice on those weird stuff animals with the teeth again.
She only opened her mouth for a total of about 10 seconds the entire time. The dentist was able to count her teeth (she has them all except for the last two molars on the top). Last time he mentioned she would need braces. This time he mentioned that she would likely need mouth expanders and extractions to make room for her adult teeth. She's also more likely to get cavities because her teeth are so close together. Awesome. At least he's breaking me in slowly. I'm wondering what he's going to tell us next time.
So she sat in the chair playing with instruments for 40 minutes and had her mouth open for 10 seconds. This set me back $75. So at least I'll make some of that back by her picking a cool gift from the awesome treasure chest again right? Yeah, not so much much. She picked those cheap pink mardi gras type beads AGAIN! I kept asking her if she wanted to change her mind. Keep in mind she has like 8 of these beaded necklaces at home already. But no she was set on those beads.
Afterwards we got to sit in the photo booth again.
Fun stuff. Maybe she will actually let them clean her teeth next time?
