The Dentist

I have to go to the dentist this afternoon to have a cavity filled, and I’m dreading it. I just know the dentist is ripping me off. It’s like when you take your car to have an oil change, and the mechanic tells you that you need to spend $600 to have your thingy-majigger replaced. No thanks, just change the oil. The dentist is the same way! They make up problems that aren’t really there just to squeeze every penny out of the insurance company. My teeth don’t hurt, and I brush and floss like a maniac. There’s no way this cavity is real. It’s a scam I tell you!

    Actually, I’ve been going through the same thing with my dentist! Apparently hormonal changes can also cause cavities regardless of your meticulous hygiene habits. That and we think my sealants might have trapped some nastiness under them. Either way, I’m not thrilled that after 25 years of a cavity-free existence, I’m getting my fourth filling in a year!

    Katie – I used to never have cavities either, and now all of a sudden I have one almost every time I go. They blame my sealants sometimes too, which is weird because I thought sealants were supposed to prevent cavities. At this rate by the time I am 40 my teeth will be completely made up of fillings!

    I’m seventeen and getting my wisdom teeth in. I’m dreading the next dentist appointment because I know they’re going to recommend pulling them… but they are not causing any pain at all! And I love those Sweet Tooth pillows ^_^

    Kelly – I haven’t had my wisdom teeth out yet either and I’m 26! Mine also don’t hurt at all aren’t even visible since they are growing in under my other teeth. Every time I get x-rays the dentist is like “we need to take those out!” What a racket! They just want more $$$ I think.

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
