So I went to the dentist today and found out I had a cavity. Ugh! My hygienist asked if I ate candy. Um yes, chocolate candy especially is good like whenever! I’ve done everything right: I use my Sonicare toothbrush 2x daily and I’ve even upped the flossing count per week. I make sure popcorn kernels get removed and I also like to chew gum. I guess I’ve got to cut back on the sugary sweets. I have a mouth full of fillings so it’s not like this is anything new. It’s just a reality check that I’m not invincible and should maybe start eating less candy sweets to ensure I still have real teeth later to enjoy the sweeter things in life.
Luckily this new dentist trusted me when I said I don’t need a shot. Just drill and fill and let me go home. Why do dentists insist on numbing people all the time? I get more worked up and nervous for the silly little shot than I do for the drill.
