Dental hygiene FAIL

Filed under: Personal — Tags: , — llcall @ 3:16 am

Today was a sad day in my world.  I went to the dentist and had my first cavity.  It was sort of a borderline one — the hygienist didn’t actually think it was a cavity — but nonetheless the dentist thinks it’s better to take care of it sooner rather than later.  So on Wednesday I get my first filling.  Whatever that means.

Although they tell me this is not surprising because pregnancy can cause dental problems, especially if there was a lot of vomiting involved, it is still depressing for someone who takes dental hygiene as seriously as I do.  Flossing is like the fourth most important thing in the world to me.

Should I drown my sorrows in soda pop and ice cream since my cavity-free streak is over anyway?



  1. WOW! Really? You’ve NEVER, EVER, had a cavity? Those are some good genes. My poor kids are already quite familiar with the dentst 😦 Although, not necessarily because of cavities.

  2. OH! I know how you feel!! I had my first cavity ever at my first trip back to the dentist after Camden was born. It was awful! I seriously felt like I had failed myself. ha ha The hygienist said she didn’t see any cavities, but then the dentist came in and used a laser thing and it said I had a small cavity developing. Ugh! I still don’t know if I believe it. Since I have had it filled, it has actually bothered me; whereas before the filling, I didn’t notice any pain or anything. Weird! Good luck with it! And sorry your perfect streak is over with as well. :O(

  5. Don’t be sad. The only cavities I have were caused by braces. They’re actually in the sides of my teeth where the metal bands were. It’s excusable if they are caused by a factor outside your control. 🙂

  6. I can imagine your pain. I’m petrified I will someday get a cavity (I have an old blog post titled “Floss is Boss”).
