Today was a trip to the dentist again...this time only for a filling that was getting decayed. After having so many root canels in the past, this was a piece of cake. Only 1/2 hour with less pain and discomfort that other experiences in my life recently. No one told me as a child to avoid cavities because they would lead to fillings which wouldn't last forever and perhaps lead to root canels which are not fun. Both of my parents had false teeth. My dad from an early age and my mom later in her life. Mom always complained about the discomfort of trying to get a good fit and eat with her false teeth. The moral of the story: brush your teeth and floss daily
Interesting how health challenges come in different intensities. Getting my teeth worked on pales to the discomfort of my every 5 week injections in my eye for a swelling in my retina. After my cataract surgery, I now have 20/25 vision in both eyes but my left eye has close up vision problems which were caused by probably high blood pressure. The injections are taking down the swelling. Have been to the doctor about 5 times now and will continue until it's better. Teeth, eyes, joints, organs all part of this incredible body that we are given at birth and that needs our attention and caring throughout our life.
