Took Brodie for a visit to the dentist a couple of weeks ago, only the second time he's been in his life and the first time they didn't even get to look in his mouth!
This time he was much more willing to get on the chair and open his mouth which was good as i wanted her to see how badly he has ground his front teeth down. She said she wasn't too concerned at the moment as it's only his baby teeth but if he's still doing it when he gets his adult ones through then he might have to have a bite guard? Just wondered if anyone had any experience of this with their children?
She also said that he has two of his adult molars through already which is quite unusual as most kids don't normally start to get these through until they're 6 or 7. Not sure weather him having them now is a good thing or a bad thing but it certainly explains a lot of the "Arrrgh arrrgh arragh" fingers in mouth chewing he's always doing!
Well done Brodie for letting the dentist look at your teeth. Hope Rachel co-operates as well next month. Rachel grinds her teeth as well, I was told that it was to do with sensory stimulation or something..... Interesting that he has some adult molars. So has he lost some of his first molars?
Had to cancel Rachel's appt back in April , but made it to the dentist in May , she was very good , climbed on the chair all smiles, lay back like a big girl, & then .... refused to open her mouth despite us all encouraging etc - dentist even offered her 2 stickers to no end - then as we were heading out the door Rachel turned round said'bye, bye' & then went AH opening her mouth wide .......! What a little minx.
