Isaac’s Dental Checkup

Isaac at dentist 

Isaac had his very first visit to the dentist yesterday.  I know, I know, he’s seven and we should have taken him years ago.  For some reason we just hadn’t gotten around to it, but his school needed a form filled out by his personal dentist, so off we went.

Isaac did really well.  He answered all the questions the dental hygenist asked him, and stayed very still for his x rays.  He liked the tooth cleaning (but not the scraping part).  Then the dentist came in, and double checked everything.

We got some very good news: NO CAVITIES!

It does look like he’ll need braces, though.  We’d better start saving up for those now!

    Very proud of Isaac…….why braces?

  2. Karen Says:

    Braces because his lower jaw is small and his permanent teeth will be crowded. His first two adult teeth are coming in much farther back than they should be. The braces won’t happen until he has all his permanent teeth, though.

    Well… here’s hoping they won’t become necessary until they are necessary: the atricle referenced explains what I’m thinking.

    {By the way, THIS post is really by Grandpa Lars: But I’ve changed the reference back to the original since I’m doing this again from Cheryl’s ‘puter} 😉
