I didn't go to the dentist even one time while living in Germany...I am an avid brusher and flosser...i thought to myself that would be enough for the 3.5 years that we were there...right?
A temporary crown, a permanent crown and a root canal done yesterday. But I am glad to report that there is no more decay in my mouth.
I guess I shouldn't feel too grumpy about it, the dentist said this was not just because I didn't see the dentist for about 4-5 years and a standard cleaning wouldn't have fixed it...it was all decay BENEATH my fillings.
Here is the good news... (after I get the temporary crown replaced with a porcelain crown...)
No more dentist for a full year! Wahoo!
