Thread: Dentists....

    Default Dentists....

    Ok all you grown up tough guys..... dentists......

    I went to the dentist yesterday for the first time in 15 years... for a checkup as I reckoned it was due.

    The dentist asked me when I last went for a checkup, I stated calmly 15 years ago... and that was for a checkup, and then 10 years prior to that.

    So... once in 25 years was his reply... I said yes...

    Anyways, all my teeth are great ... just one touch up filling needed to prevent any problems, but its a minor thing so I agreed to a polish and freshen them all up for the next 25 years..

    Anyone else not like the dentist

    Not got a problem with dentists at all - see mine every year and the 'worst' I've had is a scale and polish, although not had one for a few years now since getting an electric toothbrush. Fab things those.

    Longest gap I've had is six years when I was at college/in London and just never got round to seeing the dentist back home at my folks - it was just a scale and polish then as well! lol

    Usual trip to my dentist involves a 5 minute check-up and more time spent talking about photography as he's into that - he's even bought a few of my fine art prints over the years! lol

    Oh, and not a single filling in my mouth.

    Also not been to the Dentist for about 15 years, couldn't be bothered, now i'm not registered with one. So i'm in the hands of the NHS emergency dentists, should the need arrive. I suppose iv'e saved myself a few quid over the years.

    I go to have a check up every six months. I have been doing this for many decades. I have even been knwon to have a filling replaced without anaesthetic.
