    Neither. But this is taking some of the edge off.



    "Oowwww..."


    PS. Kids, take care of your teeth, they're the only ones you've got.

    Or, abuse your teeth in any way you can, then get a mouth full of crowns. They're indestructible.

    Yeah, my 'rents mouths are full of black cavity fillings (1960s style, yuck!), set me straight ever since. I brush my teeth twice-daily on school days, otherwise once at night. No fillings yet and otherwise good oral hygene. Phew.

    The only sugary things I have are my morning cocopops or cheerios (yeah, laugh) and the chocolate muffin or 2x chocolate cookies at around 1700h.

    The single most regrettable word of my entire life:

    Doctor: Minh, do yo need anything for the pain?
    Minh: (can't feel own face) Nah!

    Right up until you get an infection underneath the crown. Then you're in trouble.

    For further reference, see all the dinnertime conversations my mother had about her days at work... Put me off dentistry for life.

    Great, now I'm worried.

    I wouldn't worry too much, I just suffer from being the son of a dentist, and specifically a dentist who worked (now retired) at a special invention called a "dental access centre."

    Which is basically dentists for people who don't have dentists, (and therefore, dentists for people who haven't been to a dentist in 20 years and are only going to one now because they're in severe agony). My outlook on dentistry is therefore slightly coloured.

    Although, ironically I haven't been to a dentist in about 7 years.

    I've read a few articles that link oral issues with other health problems.  Most of those 'problems' were due to lack of flossing, not poor dental hygiene. 

    Floss now or pay later Sad
