Well thats £160 gone on one tooth! Wish I earned that kind of money for half an hours work! Still, its a good job and the mess the old dentist had left has been tidied up and I can now eat on that side! He had left me with no tooth contact!
Had a word with the dentist [she is very nice and no pain at all!] and it seems the funny pains I have been getting in my face and jaw go with the chipping of my teeth! Apparently I grind my teeth, which also makes sense as sometimes teeth feel as if they have been bruised.
Hygeinist I saw last week [£53] gave me some good advice. I now have an electric [battery really] toothbrush - did you know you should hold them still so the bristles do the work moving them enough to cover the whole tooth? Then a gentle massage over the gum, followed by flossing or using those funny brush things to clean between the teeth - then a mouth wash!
Too much effort? No my teeth now sparkle and my gums no longer look sore! I also use mouth wash after lunch! Freshens breath and nutrilises the acid from eating! I have a mouth full of fillings and this is the most useful visit yet!
Sorry to go on about it, but this advice could have saved me a lot of money if I had had it years ago - and I might even have whiter teeth!
Got to go to bed, so good night - going to sort my teeth out first though!!
