So, today I sat watching my daughter go thru the prep for a crown. Last week, I held her hand thru a particularly nasty root canal. Both times she incurred significant pain and stress. Today I realized that having gone thru both with her is truly adding to my own angst about my own upcoming procedures. She had 1 root canal and one crown prep….I am trying to wrap my head around the idea that I need a root canal, 4 implants and 13 crowns! Tonight, I am a wreck, to say the least! I feel her pain and I’m already dealing with my own!
So, one might wonder if I really have crappy looking teeth. Well, if you ask anyone, they look pretty good. I’ve been a proud supporter of my dentists vacations for my entire lifetime, religiously seeing my dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and check up, daily flossing, 2-3 times brushing and still, my teeth are crap. Heredity and the lack of fluoride in the 50-60’s are to blame.
Anyway, teeth be damned…
