Trip to the dentist

Yesterday, I went to the dentist and good news - no cavities. In fact, the dentist said I had the best teeth in the neighborhood. On the other hand, the Hygienist said, I really needed to work on my gums. What good is having good teeth if they fall out of your gums. So, now I have set the goal of flossing at least once a week.

Hey, it is better than I was doing before.

In fact, they said, if peoples' gums get so bad, they need to schedule cleaning in two appointments, one half of the mouth at a time. They numb your mouth (I guess just the side that they are working on) and then have you come in more frequently.

Part of it could just be threats - but I don't want my teeth to fall out. With gum stimulation, I can strengthen my gums and make them healthy again! On with the flossing

okay, that's just weird.
Early this year, I also started trying to floss like, well, sometimes, after getting tired of my dentists/hygenists yelling at me for not doing so.

This, I think, is one of those sucky things about getting older - used to be, trying to act like a responsible adult came with new perks, like getting a drivers' license, or getting to vote, or turning 21 and getting to drink. Now... floss? Bah!
