Dentist the Menace

Posted on

As my dog is always chewing something (sticks, dry food, biscuits…) it never occurred to me that his teeth would be bad.  So I was really surprised when his vet said he would have to have some teeth removed as well as cleaned.  I felt terrible!  But it had to be done.  He seemed fine when I took him in on the day and actually trotted off with the technician without a backward glance.  That should have been my clue to how he was feeling towards me.  I knew he was in good hands, but that didn’t stop me from worrying.

I was so relieved when they called to say he was resting comfortably and could be picked up later that evening.  I thought for sure he would be happy to see me but when they brought him in he made right for the door with a glance my way that spoke volumes (of swear words)!  It wasn’t until just before bedtime that he acknowledged my presence and that was only when I gave him a little snack.

Well it hasn’t been that long and he’s already finding sticks on our walks and happily chewing away as if he hadn’t lost a single tooth.

Tooth or false…that is my question

Posted on

I’m getting older and my teeth aren’t getting any younger.  After figuring out how much it could cost for dental care & repair I think it would be a lot cheaper to get a new set.

I just tell myself that if it does come to false teeth I’m getting the biggest and brightest smile Hollywood has to offer!

Tooth and consequences…

Posted on

I was eating a cookie when all of a sudden I felt that sickening crunch of a cracking tooth.  It’s fixed now but in the future since I’m deathly afraid of dentists and don’t have insurance, alternative dental care is definitely called for!
