We did it!

If you have been following us since Dariya came home you know what a traumatic thing the dentist visits have been for her.

Three years ago at her first visit they seriously didn't touch her and she was screaming the place down.  But, slowly, slowly, slowly she has come around.

I made a book of what we do at the dentist a couple years ago (pictures were of Aidan at one of his appointments).  The girls still love reading that book and get it out often.  About two weeks prior to a scheduled checkup I let the girls know we are going and we begin practicing.  The girls LOVE to play dentist and let us clean their teeth so I was hopeful that this time they would both do great.

I also took Grandma along to sit with one girl while I was with the other!  PRICELESS~

I have to report that BOTH girls did fabulous!  They let the hygienists clean their teeth and put a fluoride treatment on.  The attempted xrays but the film was just too big for the girl's mouths yet so we opted to skip it this time.  Poor Dariya was gagging on the film touching the back of her throat.

Alayna's adult teeth are popping in on the bottom where she has lost her baby teeth, but no molars coming in yet.

Dariya has an adult tooth coming in on the bottom behind her baby teeth which aren't budging yet. Shark teeth!  Looks just like Aidan's did at this age hmm, anyone see orthodontics coming up? She STILL hasn't lost a tooth and will be 7 in a couple weeks.  She however, has 3 of her 4 six year molars already.

Thankful the appointment went without a hitch.  Thank you Grandma for the back up.

See you in 6 months Dr. David!
