First Visit to the Dentist

Dear Diary,

Imran and Zarra had their first visit to the dentist. Zarra was the first one to be checked. She has 5 teeth with holes and her front teeth are in bad condition. Sian anak Mama… As she is only 2 years old, the dentist said she cannot do anything as it might have bad effects on her teeth later on. We would have to wait until she’s at least 5 years old before we can pull out her teeth. For the time being, if she complains her teeth hurt, I would have to go to a dentist and ask for antibiotic.

Next is Imran’s turn. His teeth are good except for his 2 chipped front teeth and 1 tooth is longgar. So, Imran had his first tooth extraction. He did not cry during the whole process, only squirmed in his seat. However, as soon as he saw blood on the gauze, he cried so loud the whole clinic could hear him. After a while, he calmed down and was excited now that he has a new tooth.

Their mother also tumpang sekaki hihi. The dentist had this to say about my teeth, “Mm, gigi Mama cantik! Cuma haus ja. Sure suka berus gigi kuat-kuat ni.” Kembang sekejap ye kena puji dengan doktor gigi. Since I was already there, I might as well get my teeth clean and I did scaling and polishing.

Note to myself - I have to be extra careful with Zarra’s teeth from now on.

Unai - your entry reminds me that I need to go to the dentist too. Ye lah masa pregnant kan tak pergi check up it's high time to have my teeth check. I pun belum pernah bawak Auni or Aila to the dentist for their checkup. Zarra bravenya willing to go for checkup...I cannot imagine betapa kuatnya Aila will scream if I bawak dia pi jumpak dentist. Woooo scary thought. She's going on 3yrs old dah...berus gigi mmg dia malas. Auni rajin sikit but she loves her sweets, so susah sikit la nak control taknak bagi gigi berlubang...:))

Ica - Sepatutnya dentist kena visit every 6 mths if tak silap la. Tp sejak tua-tua ni memang tak gi pun unless ada problem. Alhamdulillah my teeth never give me problem. Tp now dah ada anak-anak ni kena la rajin visit dentist. Nasib baik la Zarra nak check hari tu.

Zarin - Heran kan kita takut nak gi dentist. Tambahla budak-budak...

Graceturner1 - So sorry to hear that your first dental experience was painful. Sorry again can't be of much help regarding child specialist dentist in U.A.E as i am in Malaysia and have nobody over there that i know.

Ermayum - Yg peliknya budak-budak ni suka berus gigi. Suka nak telan ubat gigi yg mcm-mcm flavor tu sebenarnya. Zarra lak tak suka sangat candy/choc tp dentist tu cakap maybe due to her susu especially susu yg dia minum time tido. After minum tu tak minum air, so all the residue susu (kan ada gula gak dlm susu) still inside her mouth and on her teeth. Dr tak tampal pun gigi Zarra.
