I went to the dentist for the first time in seven years late last week.
A bunch of time spent cleaning, examining the wear on my teeth and discussing its causes.
Grinding, clenching and chomping in the night (mouth guard recommended).
Acid wear for a number of reasons.
Dry mouth from the medications I’m on.
And over zealous brushing.
Apparently a toothbrush should last me three months.
Mine won’t even make it to three weeks!
So I was handed a soft toothbrush, instructed to make it last three months and to cut back on the obsessive brushing.
It just doesn’t feel right! Meep!
What’s a girl to do?
(in the meantime, I’m having extra hot showers to compensate for my need to FEEL CLEAN)
