After what is probably almost ten years since my last dental visit, I finally overcame procrastination and FEAR to go in for a way overdue checkup. To be honest, I was more frightened of hearing my diagnosis, so I asked Sarah to come along with me for moral support.
Went in with a lot of nervousness on my part. Had no clue how to do the X-ray since the guy said to bite them with my insiciors, which I thought was the pointy teeth at first. Then, out of ignorance, I asked, with my front teeth, and he said yes. So got the X-ray done…HATED IT since I felt so claustrophobic and whatnot.
Then he checked the inside of my mouth for evil cavities and whatnot. Now, this was the part that got me worried. I anticpated the dentist telling me I’d have over thirty cavities and five root canals. Turns out that I have some overdue cleaning to do, two cavities, and a filling that needs to be replaced. …That got me to calm down a whole lot.
Now that the scary part was over with, I just have to get cleaning, and the two cavities within the next three months. All together that will run about $160 bucks. Not sure how much the filling replacement will be…will ask them on the phone when I call to make an appointment.
Once all that’s done inside my mouth, I just have to get into the habit of a checkup and cleaning at least once a year now. No more waiting ten years to do something regarding my health!
