Once again, this is one of those topics that makes me wish I could have a sneak peek of your answers before sharing mine. Will most of you pick funny answers or serious ones? Am I the only one who will choose this response? Only time will tell.
Due to my desire to avoid all high risk activities during the pandemic, I skipped a few scheduled dental cleanings in 2020 and 2021. It was a relief to finally have a cleaning and thorough checkup last month. There was one tiny cavity in my mouth that they were able to fix without using any numbing agents or pain medications at all, but other than that my teeth looked good despite me breaking the rules about how often they should be professionally cleaned.
I wish there were a way to keep all of our teeth clean and healthy without them needing them to be scraped by dental hygienists a few times a year, x-rayed, filled, and sometimes even replaced. Wouldn’t that be nice?
I’m not afraid of the dentist, but it makes me shudder when their tools scrape against the tiny bits of plaque that my toothbrush accidentally missed. What a weird sensation that is.
Someone should really invent a machine that will either use sound waves to effortlessly remove plaque or change human physiology so we no longer create it in the first place!
