As I was sitting in the dentist chair, hearing that dreaded, “you need a filling” statement come out of the dentists mouth…I just thought about all the kiddos I’ve worked with that have autism and how HARD going to the dentist is for them. The angle of the chair you lay in, the lights in your face, the sounds of the drill buzzing next door, the feel of the metal (and the sound) on the teeth, the feel of the saliva pooling in your mouth, the sound of the tool that applies the toothpaste to make your teeth all pearly white and shiny…
Hopefully this will prevent more than that annual dentist trip. You don’t want to have to go more often for tooth decay and fillings, etc….do ya???
