So, Jackson just turned two years old last month and it's now time for his first dentist appt. Off we went this morning to see how his pearly whites are doing....not good was the diagnosis.
His bottom two teeth both have cavities...already! I about cried when the dentist told me that. We brush every morning, every night and have since they first started coming in. He doesn't eat a load of sweets, so what's the deal.
The Dr. said it's just an sbsolute fluke. He said if kids don't take care of their teeth, then it's the top ones that get cavities first. Jackson's are in his bottom back teeth. Dr. seemed to believe that his little teeth never developed correctly and never got hard in the middle like they are supposed to. Thus, he has cavities in that space that's SUPPOSED to be hard, but is soft instead. ARGH!
So, August 23 is the date for two fillings. They said at this age it's a fight from beginning to end even with sedatives. I am so not looking forward to this. If they have to drill too much, he will have to have caps. Oh man, I sure hope not.
Here is a pic of his first dental appointment.
