A visit to the dentist

Friday, January 20, 2012

At my last 6-month dental checkup, I learned about one more thing on that seemingly-endless list of things that "go bad" as you age--your fillings. Apparently after doing their job for many, many years, they can actually cause tiny cracks in your teeth that REALLY ruin your teeth. That has happened to one of mine, so today I go in for a crown. That's what it's called, but I just call it my first false tooth. They remove most of the tooth (yeah, cringe with me at the thought of all that drilling) and mold-in a man-made one, so....

Fortunately, it's a molar, and if I had just given you some more famous quotes, instead of trying to think a new daily blog topic to fulfill my challenge requirement, you'd never have even known about it.

I'm noticing something about blogging--if I've already listed my goals, unless I'm doing a regular progress resport, I tend to fall into either patting myself on the back or voicing a complaint. I think it's because of the desire to say something interesting....

    I have 2 crowns...and I do not like them! Sorry to hear that you had to spend your day this way - I went in for an hour-long facial today, to end my week. Hope your weekend is fabulous; stay warm! emoticon

    I have a crown. I know the feeling. My old dentist kept warning me that the fillings don't last for forever. He replaced 3 of them with new ones.

    I have an awful relationship with dentistry. I love my dentist AND my periodontist (to give you an idea) both, they are wonderful. It's just the having to pay someone to inflict such pain and humiliation just seems so wrong....

I hear ya about blogging daily, it's kind of hard to come up with relevant, interesting stuff.
