Dentist Visit

It’s been almost 8 years since the last time I visited the dentist.  Ever since I got my license, I was no longer forced to keep up with appointments and the whole 6 months routine just feel through.  Recently, I was forced to see a dentist to see where my wisdom teeth were at [damn those teeth].

X-rays were ordered and then I suddenly found myself back into a routine with a local dentist.  Now, I don’t have swiss cheese for teeth live David at RNS does [haha – I kid!], but I guess I had to catch up on my cleaning.  It wasn’t a deep cleaning, but an intermediate cleaning, above a “routine” cleaning.  Took two visits

As a side note, I feel guilty when I can’t hold a conversation.  They’re telling you what’s going on in manner where a reply might be reasonable.  It’s not like taking to the barber – you don’t have metal picks and hands in your mouth.

Anyway, no cavities, no aches, just some receding gum pockets that appear to be normal – so I guess my brushing paid off – or lack of Pepsi.  Now that I’m “back on track,” my next visit will be in 6 months.

For those wisdom teeth – all four will be pulled.  It’s a matter of me picking up that phone and visiting the oral surgeon.  I’m not looking forward to it.

    Actually, the wisdom teeth can be fun if you have a dentist that’s willing to give you the really effective pain meds.

    I had a root canal a year ago and was dreading it, too. It ended up being an almost painless experience. I don’t remember what they gave me, but boy, it worked.

    My wife had really invasive and painful ear surgery more than fifteen years ago and STILL raves about the morphine, “that’s good stuff,” she says.

    No worries with the wisdom teeth- I had my four pulled when I was 16. all were impacted- no pain. good surgeon, I went to school the following day.

    if you find a good dentist, you have nothing to worry about.
