Dental Work

I had Dr Anna work my teeth over today. Ouch. I had *thought* I was going in for a regular cleaning, and when I got there, I discovered that, according to my chart, the last time I was there, we had agreed that the next time I came I was going to get a deep scaling.

Not Pleasent.

I got the uppers done today, and will get the lowers done next week. She gave me some magic toothpaste that will make me be less sensitive next time (this time I was curling my toes, tearing up on arms of the chair, and telling myself "this pain is not me. this pain is not me."

But my gums are way too tender. It's not from bad oral hygine, I'm pretty careful about that, and she aways compliments me on my lack of plaque, tarter, and junk. So she gave me a note to take to my doctor, there is some systemic inflamation protein something that she is recommending that he order a lab test for.

We shall see.
