Dentist....

I have a dentist's appointment at 3:15 today. It's to take care of a couple of cavities...

I was never afraid of the dentist as a child, probably because I never had a cavity. Cleanings are nothing to worry about! My first cavity (and only one until now) was during my senior year of high school, and I don't really remember much of what happened. Now, the thought of getting more extensive work done is a little scary.

I'm really, really dreading getting my wisdom teeth pulled. The bottom ones are completely "out" except you only see a small corner of them because they're buried in the back of my mouth. And one of the top ones is nestled in the edge of my skull. Just wonderful really!

What about you? Any deep-seated fear of the dentist? What was the worst procedure you never want to live through again?

Sorry to hear about the wisdom teeth. I'm afraid it's a bit more tramadic on your body when you're older. Don't be surprised if you run a fever. Follow all the after care instructions to a tee. The salt water, use it to rinse your mouth ofter. Good luck.
