1st Dentist Appointment

What a trooper! I was so surprised and pleased at how well Rylan behaved. We went to a pediatric dentist and you can definitely tell they specialize in creating an environment to help kids feel comfortable. He cooperated with X-rays and let the hygienist polish, brush, and floss his teeth. (The sunglasses are to protect his eyes from the bright exam light.) Unfortunately, we found cavities between his two upper front teeth and will need to get caps on those areas. I am hoping with more brushing and fluoride we can prevent them from happening in the future.
The dentist was delayed with another patient and by the time it was Caroline's turn to be seen, she had run out of her limited 20 month old patience. She did love wearing the special sunglasses! Her baby teeth checked out perfectly and we only have six more to come in.
