My Hannie Rose had an appointment with the dentist this morning. I was more than nervous for her, I was secretly dreading this appointment. She does extremely well with teeth cleanings but her first appointment ever with the Dentist was for a filling. Her top front tooth had a defect in the enamel which then created a cavity. At age 2 we took her to have this filled. The knock down drag out fight that ensued trying to get her to hold still for one filling had traumatized all of us, the dentist included.

This time she had 3 cavities that needed filled. The original tooth that was filled previously as well as one tooth on each side on the bottom. The dentist advised that the other two filling were due to the fact that her teeth have deep grooves that make it hard to reach when brushing. We had it all planned out, Carter would go to my Mom’s house and Tom would take Hannah to the dentist. The first filling appointment was ringing in my head so I scooted out of work and met them at the dentist’s office.

Thankfully she had laughing gas this time which really kept her calm. In the beginning when she first sat in the chair you could see her getting a little panicky; especially when the dentist came in. Once we all got to talking to her and asking her questions to keep her mind off of being scared (not to mention the gas was doing its job) she calmed down really well. Hannie took it like a champ and it was like watching a grown up getting a filling;  she did everything she was asked and never cried once. I am so proud of her!

I was so nerve wracked about the outcome of this appointment and thank God it went so smooth!
