My Dentist Loves Me, or More Accurately My Money

"Remember when I said that I was committed to flossing my teeth twice a day for the rest of my life?"

"Yeah."

"Well tonight when I was flossing I think I was a little overzealous. I yanked one of my fillings right out."

"I told you flossing is highly over rated."

"Yeah."

"One day the ADA is going to do a complete reversal on the entire flossing thing. Mark my words. I should write this down because one day no one will ever believe I said it first."

"Don't worry, I'll write it down for you."

"Thanks."

"That way when all your teeth fall out from advanced gum disease I can bring it up. I'm loving like that."

I yanked out a filling while flossing once. I was in Germany. I had to find a dentist and learn the necessary vocabulary just to go in and have the work done. Most traumatic dentist visit ever!

my mom cracked her tooth while eating oatmeal on her 40th birthday. Does that count?

AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! I hate teeth stories. I always worry I'm going to pull out a filling or even a tooth when I floss. Thanks a lot for proving that the former, at least, can actually happen. Blech.

Is your husband related to my husband? Mine also thinks that flossing is overrated. Disgusting men.

While I'm a big fan of floss (yeah, right) I do believe the toothpaste conspiracy is overblown. While I do bursh and floss, I have to admit that I think we go rather INSANE in the membrane when developing and marketing toothpaste.

After six years in France where I had say, five brands to choose from, I found myself getting dizzy upon my return when I went to the toiletries section in the Safeway in the US. When the heck did baking powder become a big dental aid? And now I'm afraid my teeth aren't bright enough?

:-) Much affection
