    i kind of enjoy it now, but as a kid they shot my teeth with a salt and other stuff liquid to take away some stain that my saliva was creating....it was fucking hell. I am still a little scarred from these moments.

    i go once a year

    More minerals come from the sublingual gland so unless you can clean the area better than 99% of people you're going to get some build up here and its not a huge deal, but thats why you see the hygienist to clean it off.

    I call it the Hank Schrader gland because of all the minerals.

    I’m sure it would hurt at the time but I can’t imagine how satisfying that would feel after all that plaque is gone

    Twice a year and I love the fresh teeth feeling. Hygienist turned me onto a new toothbrush and it close to giving me that clean feel everyday.

    Burst Oral Care. Shit is amazing man and the price is solid. New heads come automatically like shaving programs too. Charcoal infused brush heads. Gotta day everyone I’ve recommended them to have liked em. Hygienist gave me some code too that was like $40 a brush

    The Dentist office that I ghosted last year because they wouldn’t leave me the hell alone (like daily reminder texts for the few days before an appointment) sent a mass text saying that as of Friday evening, they were no longer doing routine cleanings.

    The gloves that have been discarded there need to be killed with fire.

    These are $13, but the first time I used this I felt like I had just left the dentist. I typically buy the first one but the second one works well too. I'm lazy with the whitner sometimes.

    dentist themselves are less a problem for me than the overly judgy hygentists. just shut up and do your job & keep your recommendations to yourself.

    I have very very love/hate relationship with the dentist. I love everything they do to help with my dental health/fix anything that might need to be fixed. But I absolutely hate going & having any work done.

    Basically anything other than veneers is free under my dental insurance so I go twice a year but it’s not fun.

    Same. The feeling in my mouth I get when I don’t brush first thing in the AM is nauseating. I’m a twice a day brusher and floss in the evening.

    Worst part of root canals is the needle pinch for when they numb

    Plus most dentists usually do not do root canals. Usually an endodontist will do the procedure.

    Fuck. I knew I was forgetting to do something. I'm afraid to look for a receipt but I bet my last dentist trip was about 15 years ago. I'll also bet my grill looks better than yours.

    Currently getting a crown because of a small fracture that I don't want to get worse. Bad about grinding my teeth and also an ice chewer. Working on not grinding my teeth but I can't quit ice. Save me user Taques .
