I’m sure you’ve done it too – put off making a dentist appointment for much longer than you should have. Then comes the catalyst when something hurts and you realise you MUST go. Trembling with fear for pain in your mouth and your wallet, your force yourself to go, convinced most of your teeth are on the verge of falling out. That’s when the happy moment comes: you’re definitely due for a good clean, but that’s it. Remember to floss and we’ll see you in six months. I walked out of the dental clinic this afternoon feeling ever so lucky I didn’t have a head full of anaesthetic. What a blessed relief!
