The D Word

Dentists. Good Lord.

I don't think anyone particularly likes going to them. Regardless, I had to this afternoon to check my filling. Thankfully it wasn't damaged; however, one of my teeth was chipped, so they had to grind it down.

And then came the talk.

I got the whole spiel about how my gums are terrible and I don't know shit about proper brushing technique and oh my God just looking at them hurt. Yes, I know I don't take as good care of my mouth as I should. But dammit, I don't need it rubbed in.

So, they gave me a bag full of dental tools and brochures and sent me on my way. Not a fun experience. And I'll have to go back in three months instead of six. Fuck.

I really hate the dentist.

I just found out I have dental insurance, which is good because I need to get my bottom teeth fixed. But I hate dentists...

Yeah, neither my experiences with dentists where nice. My first visit went nicely, got rid of a black spot and got patched up, but the second one... The doc drilled a relatively healthy and no-problem causing tooth just to patch it with an useless seal which breaked after just 24 hours and caused me the most dreadful pains by now. :stare:

Last time I went to my dentist, he fucked up a filling and I haven't been back since. I can't eat on my left side because of it, but idgaf. I take care of my teeth the best I can, and I don't feel pain at all so long as I don't eat on my left. My dentists have nagged me for years about my shitty teeth but no matter how hard I try it ain't good enough. :stare:

My cracked-filling tooth is a bit yellow from not getting used (I think), but I make sure to brush that sucker longer than the others.

I always brush my teeth twice a day, once at morning after my breakfast and once at night before I get into bed. I love my mint tasting tooth paste!! :la:

Then if I go to the dentists I'd brush my teeth before I go. :D

Wait wait....so the dentist sucks because they're doing their job of promoting your oral health? You knew you were gonna see them. At least brush your teeth well a week before, do some good flossing too before you go. Your bad habits are your own fault. I only brush once a day (and very rarely floss) but when I brush, I am VERY thorough about it. You could also swap to an electric toothbrush, the difference is just amazing.

Trust me, I didn't want to go. The appointment was made for be because I was too stubborn to go, but I needed to get a tooth checked. It does not mean I have to enjoy the experience.

I was hoping the D word would be "Dessert" :saddummy:

Yeah I've been there... literally. Had to have an unconventional metal contraption attached to my back teeth for 6 months to push my bottom jaw forward when I was 12 and then braces on for another 6 months to keep it in place. During that time I managed to get gum disease which was a lifetime first because I couldn't get to the areas the braces were covering when cleaning my teeth. Dentist got all pissy about it and lectured me. My teeth/gums have been fine since and his $2000 operation did shit all in the way of pushing my bottom jaw forward, it went back to where it was. :stare:

But, you won't have to get on hormone replacement therapy until you're like 65.

And by then, who knows if they'll even still have that as a treatment.

More likely they'll have something even better. :nod:

So cheer up, you're going to be around for a long time. :hug:

I hate the dentist. I think it's pointless to pay someone to brush your teeth. And that hook thing they take to your teeth is just painful and the after-feeling drives me nuts for days afterwards.

My last girlfriend loved going to the dentist :no: She was an odd one...
