The Thoughts of a Frumpy Professor

I just returned from my semi-annual teeth cleaning.  I am glad to report that my teeth and gums are healthy and happy and that there was very little in the way of cleaning of tartar that needed to occur.  My new dentist said that I have excellent teeth and gums.  This is such a nice contrast.  I originally had my prior dentist for over 40 years, but when he retired, his patient list was sent to a new dentist who I went to for about two years.  He was a nightmare... wanting to do all sorts of nonsense to me and wanting to replace intact fillings and adding crowns and all sorts of other b*llsh*t to pad his wallet.  I left him after he botched a (I suspect, unnecessary) filling replacement which gave me a great deal of hassle for which I have been aggravated about for quite some time.   I did not visit a dentist for two years, out of dislike for this fellow before I ended up taking the bull by the horns and calling around to find the fellow I now go to.  He has been wonderful, and compliments me on my teeth care habits and says my mouth, jaw, and gums are all robust, healthy and strong.

So, my teeth are especially white and shinny at the moment.  It almost makes me want to not drink any coffee for a while to keep them so nice and polished.  We shall see how I feel about that in the morning when I normally have my coffee.

Had my teeth cleaned on Monday as well. Tuesday, coffee and frozen blueberries and other teeth-dulling stuff. Such is life.

How vain...

I've been very happy about having no fucking teeth since getting rid of them.

All is vanity
