Two trips to the dentist. #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is:


We have had a quiet week....Again just plodding along with life. We have been thinking about teeth a lot though and there has been a lot of extra brushing.

Earlier this week Becky went for a check up on her braces. She's had them on since September 2015 so now every appointment seems to be getting closer to her having them removed....

Last time she was at the dentist's the man said she may get them off at her next appointment which was on Tuesday.....She was very excited about this. She ended up seeing someone different and the woman said she at at least another 3 months with them.....Ugh. I am not saying the man isn't doing his job properly but the woman seems like more of a perfectionist.

Becky was very disappointed....For the last year and half or so she Becky has been brilliant making sure to avoid foods she shouldn't eat like popcorn and chewing gum. Now she just want's to bite down onto a full apple instead of having to chop it in bits.....

Her teeth do look amazing compared to what they were.....I really hope for her that the braces come off at the next appointment....

Yesterday we were at our normal dentist's for the regular 6 month check up....I do love our dentist. A few years ago when he was new he wasn't so good with kids but now he is brilliant....My girls love going to see him for their chats and I find it hard not to laugh all the way through the appointment.

Becky was up first and her teeth are looking amazing....The dentist can't wait to get to them when the braces are removed and give them a polish. He doesn't mean they are dirty she is doing very well with the brushing but they will just need an extra clean....

Ellie was up next and her teeth are fine....She could do with brushing more but the dentist did notice the left hand side was perfect and the right not so good.....My theory is by the time she gets to the right hand side she loses interest....So the dentist gave her a lesson in brushing by giving her one of the purple dying tablets to chew on....Her face when she saw her purple teeth was hilarious. She showed the dentist how she brushed and she did pretty well. She only needed a couple of pointers....

While we were there he asked if she had recently lost a baby tooth....I said no. Ellie said yes, she forgot. She lost one at school on Wednesday.....I can't believe she forgot. She is usually so excited about the tooth fairy visiting. Hopefully this morning the tooth fairy will have left some money. hehehe

They are both booked in for their next appointment in 6 months and Becky gets to have an extra one as soon as her braces are off. Hooray. hehehe

  3. We had an orthodontist trip this week too. Your dentist sounds like one of a kind. Hopefully it won't be long until Becky's braces come off. My Teen had hers removed over Christmas and has barely stopped smiling since. #wotw

  5. I can't believe she forgot she'd lost a tooth! lol. Your dentist sounds very thorough. I hope the brace comes off soon but I'm sure the inconvenience will more than be made up for with the results #wotw
