The dental cleaning today seems to have gone pretty well. Once the topical was on, I only felt pain like, twice. So that would seem to be a good sign. Of course the hygienist took a mess of x-rays, and I do have to wait and see how those turn out. But she didn't wince in horror and disgust, or mutter "Dear God." I would have been a little worried were that the case.
With that fascinating info shared, I now sign off. Remember to floss.
