Today faith has her first dental appointment and we left the clinic smiling. 😊
i have been contemplating for a while whether i should be bringing faith for a dental appointment. many articles have recommended bringing babies for their first dental check when their first tooth erupts. so after asking around, my friend highly recommended dr toh siew luan. indeed, dr toh was professional and detailed in her explanations. she was very patient with faith although she was running around and touching everything she could. after the initial assessment, it looks like we are on the right track to keeping faith's teeth healthy. we have been doing the following:
1. no sugared drinks like ribena, yakult
2. no sweets and chocolates for faith
2. drinking milk from straw or cup.
3. brushing teeth x2/ day
4. no prolong s*****g of thumb (even though she self soothe to sleep by s*****g her thumb, the total thumb s*****g is <1hr).
5. no night latching.
things to improve on: to clean her teeth after her last latch of the day which is just before her bedtime and usually she had already brushed the teeth by then.
i was taught on how to brush faith's teeth properly and the signs of decay. it was a short session yet i have gained a lot more knowledge on dental health! we left the clinic with a photo taken to commerate faith's first dental visit- such a sweet gift 🤗 and we will be seeing dr toh in 6 months time.
it' is recommended to start dental visits early so that dental decay can be prevented and a dental check routine can be established.
