Day 2664 – Well, It Didn’t Backfire

You may be wondering how my 4 cavity extravaganza went. I’m happy to report, quite well! We only filled 2 yesterday, still more than I’ve ever had filled at once. I have to say, my new dentist is pretty cool. When I went for a cleaning a few weeks ago, I got my xrays taken by an open air machine. I got an almost 360 picture of my teeth in under a minute. SO thankful I didn’t have to do those big bite wing thingambobs! By the time I sat down in the chair for the cleaning, my xrays were ON MY FILE on the computer next to the chair! After that experience, I was curious to see what the filings would be like. As I sat down, the dentist clicked on a live video button. What? Turns out, they have a camera they can put in my mouth to take pictures at different points during the procedure. I was able to see the before, during and after. It was pretty flippin cool. Now, I don’t have the best teeth, thanks to my poor habits when I had braces….so it was a little embarrassing to see my nasty ol’ teeth on a screen like that. BUT, it was sooooooo neat. I also have to say, the dentist was done in about 40 minutes. Not too shabby! I spent the rest of the day eating sorbet and resting. Shout out to the best hubby ever who got me mashed potatoes and gravy and all kinds of food I could eat.

Hello to a little cleaner of a mouth for my AHHHHH selfies…
