Oral Prophylaxis

Last month, the clinic staff texted me that we need to reschedule our dental appointment because the dentist has a medical mission on that date so I replied that I’ll go back to the clinic to reschedule because my son has classes already so weekdays is not possible. 

When I learned that June 19 is a holiday “Laguna Day” so no classes in his schoolI went back to the clinic and reserved the date. It was Friday so hubby is in the office, I was really worried because last year, we had a hard time convincing my son to lie down on the dental chair. But I was glad that my son cooperated. 



Since this was the second time, the dentist already cleaned his teeth. Last year kasi parang toothpaste and brush lang. Dentist said that my son has no cavities and no permanent teeth yet. I was advised to have x-ray if by 8 years old wala pa rin permanent teeth. “Permanent teeth begin to come in around the age of 6 and ends at around the age of 12 or 13.”

  3. Last week we are supposed to have a dental check-up for our son but due to many patients in the clinic, we asked to move our schedule this coming Sunday. Hopefully, he will be brave as your son.

  9. Kaya ang pangit ng ngipin ko because 1, walang dentist samin dati! haha. And 2, I'm so scared every time I see my father prepare the thread he'd use to pull my teeth. Kaya pag meron permanent teeth na palabas, I try to hide it and not tell them - hence, the outcome! haha!

  10. It's imperative for parents to start their kids with a healthy oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist.
