I can breathe again. Whew. I just got back from the dentist. I must admit I haven’t been to the dentist in, oh I don’t know, four or five years. Shame on me. I know, slap my hand. But in all honesty the past has proven it’s just not necessary. I have never had any problems with my teeth. No root canals. No fillings. No cavities. Nothing. But today as Simeon and I drove to our “New Patient” exam, all I could think about was Heather’s post about having eight cavities. I did not want to ruin my streak. I mean, I have worked really hard to be cavity free for 24 years and I didn’t want to ruin it now!
And luck for me I didn’t! Whew. In fact, my new dentist even told me that I only need to get X-rays taken every three years or so. She said anyone who tries to convince me otherwise is just trying to charge me unnecessarily. Is my new dentist perfect or what? Thank goodness!
