Kenzie had her first real dentist appointment today. They looked at her teeth last year but didn't attempt x-rays or anything like that. I showed her pictures of Madison's first visit from the blog post I did last year. I actually think it freaked her out seeing the masked person with crazy microscope glasses digging around in Madison's mouth. But once she was actually at the dentist I could tell that it was reassuring for her to have seen pictures of what they were doing before having it done to her. She did great for the x-rays and for the cleaning. She didn't like the taste of the gritty toothpaste or the fluoride and gagged a little, but other than that she handled it like a champ! She has pretty teeth and no cavities! She got a new orange toothbrush and a ducky toy and promise of ice cream later. The dentist also told me not to worry about the girls sucking their thumb...sure, they'll probably need braces as a result, but their are bigger battles to fight.
