A VISIT TO THE DENTIST

Jonathan had his half-yearly dental appointment today. It's not actually half year cos we have been postponing his appointment. First it was the doctor then it was us. But I'm glad we finally got to do it today.

When we got there, we had to go through the thermal scanner and were given a mask each. Yes ... Jonathan had to wear one too. He was a little uncomfortable for the first few seconds but after explaining why he had to wear it, he was very co-operative.

Took this using my mobile phone. We waited for about 15 minutes before our number was called and he stayed like this throughout, even after we finished our appointment! So proud of him!

Appointment went well. I wrote earlier about his 3 baby molars that came off during April and May 09. Today, the doctor checked and told me 4 instead of 3 have come off and new molars are growing. They are all in the lower jaw.

Now ... where did the 4th one go? haha. It didn't matter so long as he was safe when it came off and thank God he didn't choke on that loose tooth.

She proceeded to count and check the other teeth and said his set of teeth are in good condition and that we can expect the next 4 molars on the upper jaw to drop off any time during pre-teen.

She was pleased that Jonathan could open his mouth a little more and not so rigid. She hopes that slowly she will be able to clean and polish his teeth soon so we don't have to go the general anesthesia way.

I requested his next appointment to be in January 2010 because we don't like to go during the school holidays. Too crowded. Today ... it was pretty quiet and we only waited 15 minutes for our turn.

After that we went to Marina Square for lunch, the library @ the Esplanade and headed home.

This time around ... he didn't have motion sickness. Thank you Jesus!
