Caleb at age 3 had a MAJOR MELT DOWN, I mean total disaster freaking out kinda melt down.
He kicked and screamed (which was not like him).
So I gave up on the dentist… but told him when he was 6, he’d have to go.
So… today, on his actual birthday 😉 what a present! haha… he went.
We all went, besides Taite. I had someone watch Taite (THANK YOU!), so we wouldnt risk scaring Taite, if Caleb did freak out again. Thankfully though, Caleb didn’t….
and we were so proud of how well he did.
He didnt fidget, or fuss, nothing. He sat right there just as calm as could be.
The hygienist said “I can tell you aren’t 5… you are definitely 6.”
That gave him the biggest booster and smile on his face. He was so proud.
So my advice to moms trying to force their 3 yr olds to have a cleaning… don’t lol… just wait a few years, trust me, HUGE different… and honestly whats the rush? If you brush those lil toofers well, there should be no need for a dental apt until age 6. Calebs teeth btw looked great 🙂 and the Dr. said he has lots of room for new teeth to come in, yay, so hopefully no braces in the future.
Also Calebs 6 yr molars are coming in (never knew there were 6 yr molars!) – That explains the back of his mouth being sensitive.
He also has a loose tooth! I had no idea.
She said it may be a few months, but more than likely he will loose one before Christmas.
Heres a few more pics for fun. Oh and Owen had fun watching 😉
