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.
