Yesterday S visited the dentist for a cleaning. She did a super job, especially for being in a room by herself.
She wore her special sunglasses to protect her eyes from the overhead light.
The hygienist said that S did a great job throughout, even during her first ever fluoride treatment.
Thankfully, for little kids they do not use the trays with fluoride stuff in them. I gag just thinking about those trays and having to sit for a long time with those in my mouth. I do recall, though, that my childhood dentist had those hand-held water toys, where you had to push the button to do things like get the balls through the basket or make things spin. Remember those? I wish I knew what they are called. I think I recall a parent magazine doing a blip on them a year or two ago. I had considered getting one for S. I'll have to look them up.
Anyway.....instead of those trays, the hygienist rubbed the fluoride solution onto S's teeth with a Q-tip.
Now she has a brighter smile.
