The next few weeks will serve a reminder for me to practice good tooth habits.
Today? Another root canal. I last had one over a decade ago, one would think I learned these lessons then.
If you don’t like or aren’t comfortable with your current dentist, find a new one. If your dentist seems more concerned with payment or your insurance than with your health, find a new one. If your dentist is insisting on yanking wisdom teeth just because they are impacted if they don’t bother you and don’t have sign of infection and you are over the age of 25, find another opinion (and probably a new dentist). We have a new dentist now that we moved. I’m actually looking forward to today’s visit. I’ve had the reasons why and the plan explained to me in a professional and intelligent manner. I’ve been allowed to question why and “what if we did this” and I wasn’t shot down for ignorance.
Update: That was PAINFREE! He ROCKS. I ♥ my new dentist greatly.
