I just had my six month visit to the Dentist and I unfortunately have to report I have a cavity that needs to be filled. I’m not exactly looking forward to that as the process is never fun, but I suppose all in all it’s not too bad, I didn’t get my first cavity until well into my twenties. I think I was more traumatized by my first cavity where I had to cope with the fact my teeth were no longer perfect. I wasn’t too happy about that as I always had great teeth so I never really worried about it.
I then got a couple more cavities a couple of years later, and those ones were completely preventable on my part. I just have always been really stubborn about not liking to floss regularly so those cavities I’d formed were on the sides of my teeth right where they met up with my next tooth, so they were preventable, I just have a real problem getting into the habit of flossing daily. So I settled for doing it about once or twice a week. And that’s worked pretty well for the last few years. So when I went into the dentist for my routine cleaning this week I really wasn’t expecting to hear I had another cavity. Oh well, what can you do about it. So I’ll be going back into the Dentist to have that filled in mid January.
