early start to the day with a dentist appointment for a filling…

usually my teeth are in great shape and the regular cleaning and check-ups keep any cavities away…

unfortunately last time I was in, she noticed a broken piece on one of my back molars… I hadn’t been wearing my mouthguard as much as I am supposed to, which might have been the problem…

let me tell you I’ve been wearing it every night since… don’t want any more broken bits, sigh…

this morning she was sad when she realized which tooth it was, because I gag easily, so doing work at the back of my mouth is always stressful… for me and for her… she doesn’t want to cause any unnecessary stress or strain on me if at all possible…

whenever she does a procedure on my teeth she works quickly and takes frequent breaks so I can breathe… this is one of the reasons that I found a dentist who dealt with “chickens”… and they love purple;-)… at the water station they have the cutest little purple cups…

today it went well until they were removing some of the stuff they had stuck into my mouth, lol… but, I survived…

I don’t have dental insurance and usually what I pay for 3 cleanings and check-ups is less than the insurance… today’s bill was more than anticipated, but worth it to stop any further decay

once I got to the office I had a blueberry smoothie, which was purple too…
