I am 30 years old (yes, I really just admitted that, WOW!) and I have always been proud to say that I have never, ever had a cavity before. My dentists in the past are always amazed that my teeth are straight without having had braces and that I have healthy teeth without having work done to them, besides normal cleanings. Well today, my streak of good luck with my teeth is over! I can no longer say that I have zero cavities. So sad... I got my first filling done this morning. YUCK! I now understand what people mean when they say how much they hate going to the dentist. I totally agree! There really wasn't anything fun about it at all. I love going to get my teeth cleaned, but having work done, is completely different. It stinks when they use the drill and it tastes disgusting! I hated having my mouth numbed, I felt ridiculous. I would go to my girly checkup any day over going to the dentist! I'm glad that the first cavity is over because now I know what to expect and I can relate to all of you with your feelings of dread over the dentist. I do realize that there is a lot worse than a cavity and I am sooooo glad that's all I had to do!
