Lia's First Dental Visit

I am in love with my baby's smile. :)  That is why as early as now that she's only a little over one year old with just six tiny teeth, we already made it a point that she sees a pediatric dentist.  My husband and I want to make sure we're caring for her pearly whites the right way.  If Lia has healthy baby teeth now, she will have healthy adult teeth in the future! :)  Also, we want her to get used to sitting on a dental chair.  Other kids are scared of dentists, and we don't want her to have that kind of fear.

Lia's pedia recommended Abesamis Dental Clinic when we asked her where we could go for our baby's dental checkup.  Abesamis has pediatric dental services so it's perfect! :)  Our appointment was this morning.

Abesamis Dental is located at the 4th level of Festival Mall, Alabang. :)
I had to sit on the dental chair too because Lia's still so small. :)
In the photo is her dentist, Dr, Jamie Albudin.  She's good! Like a baby whisperer! :)


Here's a better look inside the pediatric dental room.  All the walls are decorated with colorful cartoon characters to entertain the kiddie patients. :)

Attached to the dental chair is a monitor where kids can watch movies for kids.
Frozen was supposed to be playing while we were there, I barely noticed. though coz I was busy talking to the dentist.

Blue's Clues on the wall! :)


These were the dentist's tips in taking care of Lia's teeth:

  • She noticed some faint stains on Lia's tiny teeth and she said that's because of her vitamins. Her advice was, every time she takes her meds or vitamins, water has to be given immediately afterwards.
  • Currently, we clean Lia's teeth and tongue using a wet washcloth.  She said we could already use a silicone finger toothbrush so that she gets used to it as early as now.  We could also put a teeny weeny bit of kiddie toothpaste already (no more than a smear or the size of a rice grain). However, since she doesn't know how to spit out stuff yet, we should still use a wet washcloth or gauze pad to clean up the mouth after brushing.
  • Brush twice a day.
  • Never let her sleep with the bottle (or milk) in her mouth. Doing that will lead to tooth decay.



And that's it! Lia went home happy! :) Hihi.



Cheers,

  1. I was always hesitant of dentists because of many bad experiences as a child. However, from the first moment I met this dentist Manhattan Beach, I was at complete ease.

  2. We should off and on visit to the dentist because it is important for our dental health. Medical students need to buying an essay on Oral health. Because the companies offer reliable as well truly quality services. Students can rely on the quality solutions offered from the companies.
