Jude's 1st Dentist Appointment

Yesterday I took Jude to his very first dentist appointment! YAY! 
 He was such a good boy and did so well. 

 Honestly, the appointment was only 10 minutes long! LOL But I am so proud of him! I was so pleased with the dentist too. 

 We decided to take him to the dentist that Jeremy and I have been comfortable with. They were amazing!! They took the time to hold his hand and get to know him and then started looking at his teeth. He didn't let them polish his teeth but they were able to get in there with a brush and count his teeth and check everything out. He passed! Great teeth!

The only thing that they told us to start doing is flossing his teeth.  I have to tell ya, I laughed a little.  I just don't think he will let us!  I will be trying it - they gave us some kid size floss picks so we will see.  Basically we got the no juice talk, which we do not do anyway, and the brushing everyday talk - which Jude loves to do so right now we are doing great!  Just flossing...
Any tips?

 He was very excited to be able to pick out a new toothbrush, he chose a dinosaur one! And then on our way out he got to choose a prize for being so big! He picked out a baseball bean bag and played with it all day long!   :O)

We have another appointment in 6 months, I am hoping that if we make the dentist a fun place and a normal place that he will not end up like me and need medication to get through a cleaning!   ;o) 

That is my hope!!

 Time for some fun pictures!

  2. Awesome! We got told the same thing a few weeks back at Eyan's first appt. What I have been doing is flossing my teeth and then asking if I can floss his and that seems to work. Sometimes when he is really against it, I wait until he is a bit more tired and wants to snuggle then I can floss his teeth while he is laying down. Its easy now because their teeth are not crammed in there yet.

  6. What a BIG boy!

    As a Dental Hygienist who has worked in a Pediatric dental office for over 8 years I have more stories than I care to share! LOL! As for flossing tips, you only have to floss the ones that touch, so typically the back molars. Anywhere that has spaces, and you can completely brush around the tooth can be skipped.

    Good luck!

  9. Yes, if the back teeth are closed- floss but don't put too much worry with this. I have yet to floss H teeth and she is 3.5.
