"Weally White"

This week Aiden went to his very first ever Dentist appointment! I'm not going to lie, I was really nervous for him because I had no idea what was going to happen or how he would react, but I am happy to report it was awesome! For the past while Nick and I have been concerned that there was something wrong with Aidens front tooth because when he was younger he really banged his gums above his front tooth and now it has become slightly discolored. We were worried it was dead or something so we really wanted to have it checked out. I decided to take him to the ABC Pediatric Dentist in Providence. I hate the dentist and Nick loves it so I really wanted Aiden to have a good experience so that he would love it too. They were really awesome and made him feel totally comfortable. The whole office is so kid friendly, there are toys everywhere, TVs on the ceiling and bright colors all around, Aiden really liked it a lot. He laid right back on the chair and let them check out his teeth and the assistant told him his teeth were really white and he was so tickled now he runs around showing me his teeth and telling me that they are "weally white!" The good news is that the dentist said his front tooth was fine and that he doesn't even have any cavities. He said that sometimes when a child bangs his tooth it can bleed in their gums and cause the discoloration I'm just glad it's not like going to fall out! So it was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone that is thinking about taking their kid to the dentist for the first time.

That is good to know, I've been looking for a dentist for Tessa so I will have to give them a try. She has been on a strict candy diet since about 18 months, so I'm sure they're in great shape! And the reason Nick loves the dentist is because he is a different breed of human and has never had a cavity! No fair!
