For the first time in way too long (over a decade), I visited the dentist today. What could have been a gigantic disaster actually turned out to be not half bad. The dentist commented that I have beautiful teeth and that I must have impeccable home care…which I do. I brush my teeth in the morning and the evening and gargle at both times. Plus, I floss once or twice per week (when I remember).
The dentist also commented that my gums look very healthy. Part of that has to be the fluoride from the water that I used to drink when I was young growing up in New York and part of it has to be genetics (my Father had strong teeth).
However, even with my awesome teeth, the dentist recommended that I get some fillings for my molars and that I get two cavities filled in. Again – not really that bad of a diagnosis considering that I haven’t been to the dentist in ages. I’m pretty content. Anyway, that’s the start of my weekend so far – a generally great report from my dentist!
