After what must be at least fifteen (count ‘em!!) long years, i finally got my ass around to seeing a dentist the other week for an inspection. The result: one measly cavity. Talk about dodging a bullet- i was sure that i’d have decayed enamel falling out of my mouth by this point, but apparently i take better care of my teeth than i thought. Hurrah for brushing twice a day. I went in yesterday for a major cleaning, get the cavity cleared out, and to take care of a molar that mysteriously chipped about a month ago.
Even more surprising that the cavity was so shallow, i didn’t even need a shot for the pain beforehand. Hell, the chipped tooth took longer to fix.
