LIFE is a DANCE if you take the STEPS. This is my DANCE. The story of my LIFE.

Dancing is moving to the music without stepping on anyone's toes, pretty much the same as life.

Aidan’s 2nd Dental Visit

on January 7, 2015

We make sure that we see our Dentist every six months for a routine examination and cleaning. Just like other kids, Aidan is also afraid of Dentists. This is his second visit and I’m so happy that he did not cry.

So, why is it really essential to visit your Dentist every 6 months?

Having a trip to your Dentist regularly will definitely help maintain and keep your teeth and gums healthy . At the age of 5, I’m proud to say that unlike other kids his age, his teeth are still strong and has no cavities.

When It was his turn, he wants to sit on my lap all  throughout the procedure. The Dentist then checked his teeth for any signs of tooth decay before she brushed his teeth with Vanilla Toothpaste as per Aidan’s request. It was not thorough though because Aidan doesn’t want to open his mouth after a few minutes. So, it was only the outer part that were brushed properly. Still, I’m happy for the improvement. I remembered during his first time to got to a Dentist; he CRIED. It also helped that the Dentist tried the apparatus on his finger first to calm him and to let him know that it will just tickle him a bit.  After cleaning his teeth, she then applied Fluoride. It’s his 2nd time to have a fluoride application. When he has his first Flouride Application (it’s from another clinic in Makati) LINK , we had to pay for it.  But for our regular Dentist, she charged it under DENTAL FILLING procedure. Yihee!

The Dentist was so happy that we have healthy teeth and gums so we don’t need a tooth filling procedure. So, she just applied fluoride instead and charged it to our HMO Card instead.

It was a great trip to the Dentist. Good thing she accommodated us even if its right after Christmas.

It’s really a good habit to see your dentist every 6 months so they can give a routine examination and cleaning. Remember, by seeing your dentist on a regular basis and following daily oral hygiene practices at home, you are more likely to keep your teeth and gums healthy.  🙂
