A Doctor and a Dentist

Time for appointments.  First up the orthopedic surgeon.  Brayden has been with this ortho since his first pair of AFOs.  This doctor helps us with broken bones, braces/equipment and Botox.  It has been several months since Brayden's last Botox.  Amazingly, he has not been too tight.  His hips and hamstrings are tight, as well as his feet (his look to be curved, really arched).  Thus it is time for another round of Botox, which we will be scheduling soon.
Then it was time for the dentist.  The appointment I dread the most.  Not because of the outcome but because of how Brayden will handle it.  Could there be any more torture for a boy that HATES to have his face touched, have things in his mouth and gags/vomits with just saliva?!
And sure enough, he gagged, coughed, screamed and cried...but he would open his mouth on command, several times. 

A huge bonus of never eating by mouth, it he is at VERY low risk for cavities.  We still have to brush and they recommended an electric toothbrush so when we did get in there to brush it would be more productive...oh that sounds like fun...

This is not a face of a boy that likes the dentist.

After the dentist...he still went to school.

I have always taken care of my teeth but only few dentists have satisfied me with their services. I would always recommend Affinity Oral Care Centre.

It sounds like being a mother to a child with special needs can be trying at times. That being said, the dentist visit sounds like it was able to be different this time as opposed to many. I have several friends who also have kids that have special needs, and it is amazes me how strong they are when it comes to those stressful moments like doctors visits and dental cleanings. Thank you for sharing your story.

I think I was like him during my first dental visit as Estetico Manila.

I firmly believe that Breyden would do well at A Plus Family Dentistry. There is nothing quite as unpredictable as a child at the dentist. My husband and I have found that this particular practice has excellent and well trained dentists who work well with children. Their staff is also kept up on current new techniques that help to treat patients.

My wife and I just read your blog we were incredibly touched by Brayden's story. The part about the dentist really pulled at my heart as I have a little one as well and he terrified of the dentist. Have you been to Marzosmile.com? Is an interesting resource in this area.

Thank you very much for sharing your story. My son William also has special needs, and it can be very demanding on my husband and me at times. William is autistic, and it is not a fun experience taking him to the dentist or the doctor. My heart goes out to you both.

The foot is one part of the body that is always subjected to too much strain and trauma. This is why any pain that is felt in this area is often brushed aside and thought of as mere signs of tiredness that nothing more than a few hours of rest and probably a warm soak could relieve.See more at-Orthopedics treatment
