A good visit to an awesome dentist.
« on: January 02, 2012, 05:28:58 PM »
Normally, Utah doesn't have great dentists (at least in the history of my family), but this one was awesome! Please read this all.

Getting my teeth cleaned today wasn't as bad as I expected it to be, especially since I prayed to Heavenly Father to help me endure the pain. They had chocolate chip cookie dough as one of the flavors of their cleaning paste, and it actually tasted like chocolate chip cookie dough! That was awesome. It made up for all the pinching and piercing pains that were in my gums when they were cleaning my teeth (the pointy thing that cleans your teeth going into my gums).

They also had this awesome new x-ray that didn't require those old bite-down things that dig into mouth. It's an x-ray that produces a 3D image of your teeth. There was an older style x-ray they used on me, but the things I had to bite down on did not dig into my mouth and were surrounded by plastic. I gagged a little, but it was all good.

Apparently, I have my dad's teeth. The doctor noted that I had no cavities (despite me not going to a Dentist in over 2 years), and that my teeth were strong. I have been heavily blessed by the Lord for having such strong teeth because I didn't take great care of my teeth up until a few months ago. Before that, I was not flossing, only brushing once a day, and using no mouthwash.

Apparently, not flossing is deadly. It can lead to heart disease according to the doctor and his assistant. I mostly forgot why, but what I recall is that when you have heavily severe gingivitis that the bone can break down in your teeth and can get into your body, causing all sorts of problems--one of which being heart disease. You can be sure that I'm flossing from now on to avoid that.

Anyway, it was a good visit to the dentist--probably the best I've ever had--and I'm definitely going back there in six months to get my teeth cleaned again. :)

Comments on my experience? How about your dental experiences?

Plus, you get wasted on novacaine, and that's always cool. :)

LOL. They didn't use Novocaine on me. :P

Nice, Lethes! Though... you really SHOULD brush your teeth. :P

Edit: But seriously, chocolate chip dough flavored cleaning paste? You have to admit, that's awesome.

Ugh. Bubble gum is normally nasty. lol.

But learning about flossing being so healthly that it can prevent things like heart disease was shocking. I'm flossing every day now.

An awesome dentist who pierces your gums trying to clean your teeth?

On the topic of dentists, I just had my wisdom teeth removed. I also got two fillings. The recovery went well, and plenty of painkillers helped with that. I did have to eat yogurt and spaghetti O's for three days. The first day was the worst because my whole face was still numb so I couldn't hold food or liquids in my mouth. My mom can tell some great stories of when I was coming to after the operation because of the nitrous oxide, but I don't remember them so she could just be making it up. My dentist looked like Steve Martin, and he was really friendly too. I guess I had it easy from the stories some other people told me of when they had their's taken out.

Yeah, I'm going to get my Wisdom Teeth out soon. Probably next weekend after my stitches have dissolved. Woo... one surgery after the next. >_<

Is general anesthesia the norm for wisdom teeth extractions in the US? I much prefer local.
I'm not having any of this.
