Dental Appointment

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Today was my scheduled dental hygiene exam (formerly appropriately called dental cleaning and check-up). Some time ago, I insisted on a numbing agent for my gums prior to cleaning because of the pain & discomfort associated with this process. I have sensitive gums due to aging and periodontal disease. Today, I refused the deep pocket probing for the same reason. Now, they are saying that I HAVE TO have the probings yearly. What happened to the patients' right to refuse treatments?? emoticon Maybe it is time to move on.....
