. . . because I got stickers. Okay, technically the hygienist gave them to my daughter because she was so well behaved for the hour or so it took. But Maddie gave them to me because I was a good patient. I had root scaling and planing on one half of my mouth and I get to do it all over again next month for the other half. Then I go back in 3 months for a follow up and polish and hopefully I'll be done for a while.
If you haven't been to the dentist in longer than you should -- go now. Don't wait like I did. It got me a root canal, 3 small and 1 big cavity and all this other stuff. Don't delay -- get yourself to a dentist and avoid my mistake! (I feel like a public service announcement!)
