Dear Teeth

Dear Teeth-

After all these years, I think it is about time I sent you a little thank you.  I feel like perhaps the two of us have been at odds with each other for a little while and I just wanted you to know how much I appreciated all of the hard work that you do for me every day.

I know it must have been hard all those years ago, when you were covered up for FOUR YEARS with all of that metal, I know you hated it..... believe me so did I! I am so sorry for not wearing my rubber bands as I should have - I now know your time behind wires would have been greatly reduced. No hard feelings though, right?

We've been having a little problem lately, I know we have;  I just want you to know that it's OK your sick of that temporary crown, I know it's not pretty I wouldn't want it either. I am getting that permanent crown just as soon as they can pour the gazillion dollar porcelain into the mold. It will be beautiful, you will look fantastic dear molar. I do think that the fear of the root canal was a little more than I could handle, dear friend. I would appreciate you being a little more tolerant of the cost of such beautiful crown.... I will promise to brush more, and I will even floss (and not just before I go to the dentist either!).

I feel better, I am glad we had this little chat..... Thanks again for all of your hard work!


PS Dr. Dill, I'm sorry that when you told me I didn't need a root canal that I told you I was going to kiss you on the mouth.... I didn't really mean it!

I had to learn to do this "Blog Thing" so I could respond to your latest entry.
No mention of having "sweaters on your teeth?"
Love you,

Howling over the kissing the dentist on the mouth...had he given you laughing gas??? I've had 2 root canals - be glad you aren't going for one!

How's the coat coming along?

put some cumin on your finger and rub it around the gumline. I heard it works instantly.

Love you.
