RQ - Weekend Edition

Has your LO('s) already gone to the dentist? How do they like going?

When was the last time you went? Do you floss daily? Or how often? What kind of toothpaste do you use? Did you ever wear braces?

Okay. I think I'm done. Wink

No, Aiden has not gone. I'll take him to my dentist back home when I go next time I'm home. Guessing late winter/early spring. I trust this dentist totally and even with all my moving, I've just booked appts when I visit home.
I last went last winter. So I don't manage an every 6 months (I should have gone earlier this summer but the military changed their dental insurance over and there were issues with it), but once a year is better than none right? Blum 3
I do floss daily. Every night before bed. I use whatever toothpaste I have under the sink. I buy whatever is cheap to free with coupons. Right now I'm on a crest kick. When these run out, it'll be colgate because there are a lot of target and manu coupons right now to match up at target. lol
Never wore braces, though I did wear an arch expander at one point.

Eeeek...

No. Miles hasn't been to the dentist yet. And I haven't been in *cough*years*cough. I hate going to the dentist so much, like have major anxiety over it, so I put it off pretty much until I have a problem. Blush

Yes, they both go 2x a year. T's been twice already. T did great this last time we went... He let the dr examine him and allowed them to clean his teeth! J wouldn't even open his mouth. J is great at home. He'll let mr brush his teeth and floss daily.I go 2-3 times a year. I also hate the dentist. I have such anxiety over it, too. But I still go for my cleanings. I never had braces as a kid, but had invisalign a few years ago.

My girls have been to the dentist twice. Both have anxiety over it, but calm down once the dentist is looking at their teeth. I go every 6 months. I hate the dentist, but I like to know that I am keeping an eye out for any potential problems. I am bad about flossing. It hurts. I do brush twice a day (mostly). I use Colgate Total. I cannot go back to anything else. I also use a flouride mouth rinse, when I remember. It is hit or miss, which really doesn't help. Lol

Has your LO('s) already gone to the dentist? Yes. We need to go again, but I'm having trouble getting DH to remember to get me our dental insurance info.
How do they like going? they do way better than I expect them to.

When was the last time you went? It's been a few years since I have gone. I just cannot seem to make the time for myself to go.
Do you floss daily? No, but I do it several times a week. I do floss the kids teeth daily.
What kind of toothpaste do you use? I do a rinse with peroxide (to help whiten) then brush with Crest. it's the only toothpaste DH likes.
Did you ever wear braces? No. I really hope our kids get my teeth instead of DH's.

Jordan just went for the first time a couple of weeks ago. She cried but still did better than I expected.

I went about two months ago. I floss every night. I think my toothpaste right now is Aquafresh? It's whatever was on sale. I had braces for 3 1/2 years and still have a permanent retainer on the bottom teeth.
