Phoenix had some cavities filled. He was so much braver than I thought he'd be!
I was so proud of him!!!

They've been going every 6 months since birth.
No problems with check ups
No cavities, so don't know how they'd do if they needed any fillings.

Have your littles ones been? Oh absolutely. He started going at 18 months old, every 6 months since then religiously (me too). And he LOVES going.

How did they do for check-ups? We've never had any issues whatsoever. He gets a full set of x-rays, teeth cleaned, a good dental fluoride treatment, and the dental exam every 6 months for the past 8 1/2 years or so. Never had any problems. He brushes twice a day, flosses once a day, uses Listerine mouthwash twice a day, and ACT fluoride once a day before bedtime. Been doing this routine for years and it seems to be paying off since he has bright pearly whites and never had a cavity.

For Fillings? Never had any cavities (neither of us have in fact). I make sure he's seen every 6 months, brushes his teeth twice a day for 2-3 minutes, uses Listerine mouthwash, flosses once a day, uses ACT fluoride once a day, and we limit the sugar intake for this as well as health reasons.

Brendan started going at 1 yr old and he goes every 6 months . His last checkup was just a week from Wednesday . He has to go get a cavity filled and he already had quite a few cavities sadly he has my soft teeth as in easy to decay no matter how much you brush or even easy to chip . So anyhow , he does just fine when he gets his cavities filled .

Have your littles ones been? Shannon went for the first time back in June

How did they do for check-ups? She did really good. Better than I thought she would.

For Fillings? She did good for these too.

Have your littles ones been? All of them, many many times!
How did they do for check-ups? Great, even my 2 yr old!
For Fillings? They don't mind any kind of dental work, Joe gets a little nervous but they handle it great. The dentist & his assts. even comment all the time about how easy my kids are to work with! And Joe only lgets nervous becuase he has sooo much work that needs done =( He's missing his laterals and we have to decide if we want bridges for laterals or to move his canines over (braces) and make them look like laterals and have bridges for canines... poor guy!

My kids are due for another visit. So far we've been lucky and none of them have ever had any cavities, knock on wood. My son has problems with calcification on his bottom teeth that needs a little extra attention, but it's nothing they can't take care of at a clean and check.
~Thanks Babydoll213 for my awesome siggie!~
