I had a follow up at the dentist from the work they finished last week. He did a full set of xrays and looked at the overall health of my teeth. I always go in every six months for cleaning and I floss and brush regularly. I was surprised when he pointed out some areas that may become troublesome in the future and came up with a treatment plan. Shame on me for following up early and use the benefits. Some of this is neglect on my part for just shuffling through, ignoring the signs, eating gummy and chewy stuff that I really don't need and not being proactive enough. This exam was a wake up call. Take care of the business at hand. For the past three years, I have been on my Mom for her follow up appointments, getting things set up for her and I neglected my own health. Got to have balance in life and even though my teeth are not about to fall out of my head, I want to take care of them better and avoid anymore dental emergencies. This doctor suggested an expensive toothbrush, the sonic care one and i am going to look into getting one. I think my teeth are worth it and I want to keep them healthy for a long, long time.
