I’ve been hesitating seeing the dentist for the longest time. It’s not that I’m afraid of the dental check-up but more being confined in the chair due to my claustrophobic tendencies. In the end I was ok. I talked myself through it. Kept telling myself I was halfway through and soon it would be over.
The oddest thing is I enjoyed dental check-ups as a kid. Never had any major work done, so never really felt any pain. Just love the sensation of rubbing my tongue over sparkly clean teeth.
So glad I won’t have coffee and tea stained teeth on my birthday so the agony was worth it. Now all I need to do is make flossing a routine.
