    I wish I could turn the clock back 10 years and take better care of my teeth. You younger guys and gals, make it a habit of visiting the dentist twice a year. I have a big fear of dentists and let that keep me from getting some needed work and now it's more or less and emergency and will cost me mega bucks my family could use towards better things. Todays dental techniques are nothing like those of 25 years ago when I had some traumatic visits. It's about painless and much cheeper to do preventive maintenance than to pay for it later.

    Just some words of advice.

    Brother, I hate the dentist. Last 2 times I had fillings they did not numb me right. Have not been back in 4 years or so. I had a deep clean done last time I was there.

    I may get over my phobia one day, who knows.

    Tea I had one of those Deep Cleaning I didnt mind it that much but I like the dentist :big_smile_2:. I really dont mind if they dig deeper I figure its for my own good and the pain doesnt really last that long

    I agree, I went too long without going to the dentist, when I finally did I had 14 cavaties and needed 2 root canals.:crazy:

    I have been going at least twice a year since I was little, I am a little bit scared for some reason about the dentist, but do fine everytime I go. I do agree that taking care of them is important.

    Anybody ever saw the movie "The Dentist". It will freak you out. They also made a sequel that was even worse. Kept me from the dentist for a while!

    I guess your lucky in some aspects. The military makes you go twice a year for cleanings and checkups. They don't mess around. Had my last two wisdom teeth cut out here in Kuwait by Navy Docs. They want to make sure you won't have any problems that will make you unable to deploy :crazy:
