Tyler's First Dentist Appointment

Tyler had his first dentist appointment on 7/7/11 at Dr. Burge's. He was a lucky little boy because his Aunt Carla cleaned his teeth! :) He did better than I thought he would, although we couldn't get him to lay back in the seat. He said he was falling in the ditch when we asked him to lean back - ha! Carla showed him all the fancy tools, and told him that she was going to tickle his teeth. She had these really cute little zoo animal cleaner things for the polishers. And lots of fun toothpaste flavors. Tyler picked marshmallow for his flavor. Tyler especially liked "Mr. Thirsty" which I have always called the spit sucker. Since it was his first appointment, he only got his teeth polished. He did good when Dr. Burge looked at his teeth, too - he let him put the little camera in his mouth and he got to see his teeth on "TV." Aunt Carla totally spoiled him because she let him take home a little zoo animal tooth polisher, one of those little mirrors, and some rubber gloves. And of course a toothbrush and some toothpaste. Plus, he got to pick out a toy from the toy room. He picked a pack of cars, of course! His teeth were fine, and hopefully next time he won't feel like he's falling in the ditch and Carla can do some of the other cleaning things to him. I also was super happy that Alaina slept through the whole appointment. ;)

Here he is right when we were getting started. I think I'm safe to say he looks a little apprehensive here...

Here he is getting polished up (notice he has a death grip on the tools!)...

And here he is with "Mr Thirsty" in his mouth...
