Lesson 1395 – This is why you should brush your teeth

Another year, another crown,*sigh* only 4 (or 5) left to go.

The other day at the dinner table our family was talking about how important it is to brush your teeth at least twice a day. (And yes, I still have some kids who go to bed without brushing – I know gross. It’s like going to bed without putting Chapstick on –  just not right.)

Anyway, during a lull in the THREE AND ONE HALF HOUR LONG APPOINTMENT this morning for my crown, I took a picture of my toothy grin and sent it to each of my kids reminding them that this was why they need to brush their teeth.

Apparently Addy got the message.

Good girl.

  1. I feel your pain, Wendy, in having to get caps. I recently spent 4 hours in a dentist chair just to get two teeth whittled down for caps, because of huge silver fillings I had put in my teeth back when I was a teenage. Because in those days (about 55 years ago) the dentists took too much of the tooth out thinking that was the best way to keep the cavities from coming back, so as we age, the remaining thin enamel left begins to crack and sometimes the tooth finally breaks. I had one to break so it and the one next to it had to be prepared for caps, which I’ve not yet gotten. However, I am told I have 5 more cracked jaw teeth that have to have caps and I am seriously dreading having to go through this 5 more grueling times, which could equate to a total of 20 more hours in the dentist chair to just prepare the teeth. I have no idea yet of what to expect in having the permanent cap put on or how much time it will take.
