The Agony of Visiting the Dentist

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.

      Thanks 🙂 how nice if we could get manicures or pedicures at the same time or something to distract us while in that chair.

        Haha, yes indeed! someone should moot that idea to the dentists, maybe they can even get a cut of what the mani/pedicurists charge. :p

        And since I am here, happy birthday in advance! (since you mentioned about birthday in your post hehe) Hope you have an awesome time with your family!
