Dentisto

Just got back from the dentist. I hadn’t had my teeth cleaned in a long time. Got three potential cavities that better brush will take care of as well as some gingivitis that more Listerine can help. Other than that the choppers remain in good shape – though a little bit tea-stained – might be time for some whitening.

I have a suggestion to all dentists everywhere. Start applying chapstick or some kind of lip balm to the patient before you start digging in there. The constant stretching and moving on a dry pair of lips is very uncomfortable. Somebody call the Wahbmulance.

    Yikes! My dentist smears tons of petroleum jelly on and around my lips. Speaking of which, it’s time for a visit.

    COMMENT:
    Ugh. Thanks for reminding me that it’s time for a visit to my dentist. I utterly dread going to the dentist. In fact, I’m downright phobic about it. And this is despite the fact that my dentist is actually very nice and quite gentle.

    My dentits smears petroleum jelly on my lips beforehand too. It always makes me feel slightly whorish. Then they sandblast my teeth with a saltwater mixture.

    Andy, I highly recomend a Sonic Care toothbrush. I never get cavities in those backteeth anymore and they are perfect for people who are not floss-friendly.

    My mother always advised to blow your nose before going to the dentist since they have a front row view of your nostril holes.
