Today I am thankful that my children don't have any cavities! They had six month check-ups and NOBODY needs a filling. Ya-hoo!!! I dang near did a jig right there in the office because this is not common place for us. Guess my "mean mom who makes me brush for two minutes" routine is working!
Then there was the time that Colby needed a filling. I was actually able to get him to the office and in the chair. He even tolerated the numbing shots, but when Dr. Hansen pulled out the drill, he took off. Seriously, everyone knows the worst part is the shot! But, there was no convincing Colby, he refused to let Dr. Hansen fill the cavity. Colby may be the only person in the history of dentistry to leave the office with a numb mouth and no filling.
itty bitty cavity, but he should be losing the tooth here shortly so Dr. Hansen decided not to fix it (wonder why). Colby has been telling everyone, "I had one small cavity, but there is a very small probability of it causing me any problems before I loose it..." Funny boy.
So that's what I'm thankful for. No fillings. No Drama. Money saved.
Caitlin is going through a little phase called "do the opposite of whatever my mom asks me to do" it's fun.
You can find Dr. Hansen at Woodland Dental in Salem.
