Child looking into a woman's mouth with a magnifying glass 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!

  1. I am so with you on the cavities but also I would love to read the other posts before doing mine. I get a lot of ideas from them.

  2. I don’t like that sound of the drills. DH has a tool that sounds just like the dental drill and it makes my teeth hurt when I hear it. Yuck. Good thing you didn’t have much that needed fixed. That’s good.

  3. I have a SEVERE dental phobia… so much so that I got queasy reading your post! ::::shudder::::

    Thanks for coming by!

  4. Okay, yeah, never needing to go to the dentist would be awesome.

  5. Yes! No more dentists! Actually, it’s not the dentists I mind, but the dental hygienists as they are the ones who do the painful work!

  6. I absolutely hate going to the dentist (as I’m sure many do) so I can totally relate to this!

  7. I have to have my mouth numbed before the hygienist gets to work. It’s a nightmare.

  8. I like having my teeth cleaning, but drilling is another story!
