It’s Been All Fun & Games At The Dentist Until…


Somehow I have spent the past 40+ years of my life cavity-free.  I'm one of those rare people that does not mind going to the dentist.  In fact, the office I go to is more like a day spa than a dentist.  I get to stare at pretty pictures of a painted on blue sky surrounded by a vine of traveling ivy while relaxing back in a comfy chair.  They hook you up with special glasses so that the glare from the overhead light doesn't blind you.  There is a fountain trickling nearby.

So today I show up for my regular cleaning and guess what?  I have a freakin' cavity!  How the heck did that happen?  Did all those fluoride tablets reluctantly taken during my youth do nothing???  Ugh! 

Gone are the carefree days of showing up for a minor cleaning.  Now there will be drilling apparatus involved and novacaine.  I don't care how many free toothbrushes they give me.  I don't like this one bit.  No-sir-ee-bob!
