An overdue visit

By , June 15, 2009 11:17 pm

Registered with the local dentist this morning. When filling in the registration form, there was a box labelled “Date of last visit”. I had to take a wild guess and wrote “1993 ?!” Based on that, you would expect my first check-up in at least 16 years to reveal some horrific stories of tooth decay, gum disease, rotting tongue etc. wouldn’t you?

But actually after my mouth got X-rayed, peered, poked and prodded at, my new dentist announced with some astonishment that indeed apparently all my teeth are basically fine. So I’m remaining a member of the elusive “zero fillings” club for now. Ah, the virtues of being raised with good dental hygiene habits by a health-conscious mum …
