Yesterday Eva had a repeat dental visit. She did very well, happily sat up in the big chair by herself wearing her spiffy sunglasses. Eva did question why she needed a bib.
The dentist declared her dental hygiene good instead of the fair that we were graded as last time! The dentist was much more realistic about the flossing this time understanding that the battle isn’t sometimes worth it. Also this time Eva is older and more receptive to Dr Karen telling her that flossing is important to keep her teeth healthy.
One of her baby molars has come through with a deficient enamel coating (like her front 4 teeth) most likely due to her premature birth. Thus we have to put a calcium rich tooth moose on it, as well as the others, to keep the cavities away.
We have a follow-up in 6 months time to keep a check on those special teeth.
