ReverendMother and Cheesehead are in tooth hell this week, so ReverendMother has picked these for Friday Five:
1. Are you a regular patron of dentists' offices?
Well, not to the dentist. I have been gifted with gum issues. I get to see a periodontist every 5 months for what's called a "partial scaling". This is a curiously scabrous term for a tooth cleaning with an attitude.
2. Whatever became of your wisdom teeth?
Two never showed up because I, apparently, was not quite wise enough. The other two had to be removed because, (oh I know you're gonna laugh) *wincing for the gales of guffaws* I have a tiny little mouth and don't even have room for all my regular teeth. (I have 24 out of 30)
3. Favorite thing to eat that's BAAAAAD for your teeth.
POPCORN!!! with lots and lots of butter. That and glazed buttermilk donuts. Oh yeah and toffee.
4. Ever had oral surgery? Commiserate with me.
Oh yes. I had a gum graft when I was 27 (just 3 years ago! hahaha), and just last month I had to have some gum cut off around a crown. And there's that wisdom tooth removal thingie. That was intense.
5. "I'd rather have a root canal than _________________."
I'd rather have a root canal than dinner with my mother-in-law.
Bonus: Does your dentist recommend Trident?
No, he says that for a queen like me, a scepter would be more appropriate. ; )
