I had trouble a couple weeks ago with my teeth and had to get a root canal. After all that, I just had to go back and do a cleaning, x-rays, and a full work-up.... after all that I have to have 4 wisdom teeth pulled and 16 fillings.....all because I haven't been to the dentist in 6 years and I suck at flossing. I guess I'll have to get better at flossing (I guess brushing everyday doesn't take care of it all) and limiting soda and candy. I forget who it was that posted about no longer drinking soda. I've been drinking just water for the past two days. Just a warning to all of my beloved friends here-- go to the dentist!!!!
