I had my first private dentist visit today. Oh, the horrible expense! Still, seeing inside your teeth is cool. She thinks my minor toothache and temperature sensitivity is down to not flossing enough, giving me slightly inflamed gums, and possibly muscular tension (need new glasses). If you say you think you might need a filling, and the dentist recommends you don't have any treatment at all, it's remarkably believable. Also, a dentist that tells me the x-ray will take 0.4 seconds is my kind of dentist.
I was kind of looking forward to finding out what teeth drilling is like. Still, not *really* looking forward to it, and pleasant that I don't have to pay for it.
