Today was the dreaded Dentist’s appointment day for BabyMibs!
The last one didn’t go too well, he curled up in a ball in the corner of the room bawling and refusing to let ANYONE near his teeth!
I really need him to be seen as he had two front teeth broken in a swing accident a year ago, and both have now gone a nasty shade of black!
BUT, despite my buying a little dentist’s mirror to practise with at home, and promising him that the nice dentist only wants to LOOK at his teeth, no joy today!
BabyMibs is totally convinced that the dentist wants to take all his teeth out and that he will be deaded afterwards!
Where oh where do they get these fears from?
I admittedly am not a huge fan of them myself, BUT have gone out of my way to be as casual and relaxed about the dentist as I can!
Now I have to book him into the local hospital to be knocked out for a checkup, something which I have been really trying to avoid!
Has anyone else had a similar problem with their toddler, and how did you get around it?
NB the dentist in question is actually quite a good one, took me three years to find an NHS one anyhow and he is surprisingly good and patient!
