IT'S been a long while since I last went for my dental check, so I kinda of looking forward to it. You know, the kind of feeling when you know your teeth is sparkling clean. And so I brushed my teeth, rinsed with Listerine, washed my face, shaved, cut my nostril hair, etc ... Hmm.. am I overdoing it?
The whole process reminds me of my dental visit when I'm very young. The drilling sound, the dentist chair, the taste of the dental solution, etc... The dentist was probably the second last creature on earth I would like to visit at that time (well, the last creature was cockroach). Comments such as "oh, I see that your baby teeth is falling off soon, let me extract it out for you?" struck fear upon me. So often, I cursed myself hard for not doing well in my CA tests. If I did well, I probably would not be sent there for such punishment. Obviously, that's not the case. Damned the freaking liar, aka my form teacher.
Back to the dentist session today. The dentist looks like a gentle old lady. I felt some kind of relief. You see, I somehow don't feel comfortable with male dentist with powerful bisceps and forearm. I don't like to end up, with my teeth being 'extracted' out, unintentionally. Nevertheless, during the whole session, some parts of my teeth were feeling abit sensitive. At certain times, the drilling on my teeth nearly makes my knees go weak. Of course, as part of my saving man's pride, I did not raise up my hand to indicate pain; I endured it. I could feel the fierce drilling vibration force and the plaque pleading mercy. Every rinse with water is always a pleasure.
The dentist reviewed my teeth status. I was told that there's no cavities, however, the teeth wall was particulary thin. One part actually chipped off. It could be due to aggressive grinding of my teeth. I was told to avoid taking hard objects, such as ice and taking tea and coffee. Oh man, that's my favourite pastime, grinding ice. Okay. I will listen to her for once.
Okay, I would like to share a South Park Episode that I watched together with Jackson this afternoon - The Tooth Fairy Tats 2000
