Lets Party


A Great Visit At The Dentist

Time to celebrate

I had a dreaded dentist appointment

My teeth feel good

After a nice deep cleaning

I don't know about anyone else

Dentists make me squeamish

I have always brushed my teeth

I have to learn to floss more

No cavities

After lots of self pep talks

I can do this

Here is a few tips I want to pass on

Tip #1 Try to limit the soda or tonic you drink

Soda or tonic might taste good

It is like battery acid for your teeth

Not good

Tip #2 If you chew sugar free gum

It helps prevent cavities

Tip # 3 Floss, floss, floss

Gum health prevents gum disease

We don't want that

Tip #4 Don't forget to brush your teeth after meals

Even after a snack

Tip #5 Keep an extra tooth brush and dental floss in your pocketbook or car

Use when needed

I could tell you more

But I don't think you would listen anyway

I am very happy

My own little paradise

My next check up in six months

It comes quick

I am shooting for no cavities

Two times in a row

I am feeling so good

Gypsy Rose Lee That would be something to look forward too. A lot can happen in one year. My Thanksgiving was nice. My family is doing fine. Hope your day went well. Please give Sid a big hug and lots of kisses from Charlotte. Thank you so much for reading and caring.

Well hope you and yours are having a Happy Thanksgiving. Perhaps if luck is with me and get back to the states next year I can once again enjoy this holiday. I have no friends here just me and my cat Sid. I would have really enjoyed a Swanson's Turkey Dinner but even that we don't have here. SIGH....

Gypsy Rose Lee I wish we had a way to sit in a chair and had our teeth get washed and cleaned just like a car wash. No guess work. Every spot covered. Then we wouldn't get very few if any fillings. At anytime we would catch any problem before it even starts. Why do we have to wait six months when the damage is already done. Dentists would be able to make sure everyone had beautiful teeth. Taking care of our teeth can be very expensive. You keep trying to make it work and things will keep changing for the better. Thank you for sharing and caring. Wishing you all the best. Maybe you can have an old fashioned Thanksgiving dinner and share it with friends. I know they don't celebrate it but they could just see what it was like and enjoy it just the same.

Well good for you. My teeth need lots of help but right now I am still not budging. Most likely before the holidays so I can just get by. I have always wished that people had the kind of teeth where one goes bad, then falls out and a new one grows in place. But then what would all the dentists do?

Quartzx Punctuation can be very tricky when you are talking about things that happened and then you are viewing it from the present with your current emotions. I appreciate any pointers and tips. My thoughts come to me in blocks of ideas. I try to make it flow as easy as possible. Sometimes I write the way I see and feel and it is not always perfect. Our imperfections in life shows that we are human and make mistakes. You might be able to see past the grammar and find the buried treasure hidden deep under the sand where no one has ever gone before. Thank you for reading and sharing. Make today a day filled with happiness and forgiveness.

You need a little work on your grammar/punctuation/tenses, but overall, good work!

Billybuc There were years I remember going to the dentist and getting fillings without any novocaine. Times were different and I tightly gripped the arms on the chair as tears rolled down my eyes. Now with a little prick of a flavored needle you are numb and before you know it all is done. Thank you for reading and sharing.

Manatita44 Our teeth are so important. Bad teeth and gums can affect our whole body health. Thank you for reading and sharing.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on November 16, 2017:

Congrats! I hate the dentist. Hate is a strong word, but accurate in this case. :)

I have special ones that do the insides as well. Have a great day.

manatita44 How did you make out ? I think it was cool we were both at the dentist about the same time. A very effective tooth brush is the Phillips Sonic Care electric toothbrush. It cleans and works on your gums better than an ordinary soft toothbrush. Thank you for reading and sharing.

Chuckle. I went today and was in advance by a week!! talk about being keen!

Your tips are invaluable and I do use them. The Corsodyl can also stain the teeth, but yes, the hygienist is worth it. They charge £56.oo where I am, about $70.00. Informative post.
