Wisdom learned at the Dentist

  1. One comment about dental appointments. Ask the dentist about using a bite block. It’s a hard rubber thing they can put in between your jaws on the side they’re *not* working on. They come in different sizes. I have really tight jaws so my dentist uses a child-size bite block on me. It has saved all of us a lot of stress and has saved me a lot of pain. My dentist first tried using one when I sat in the chair with tears rolling down my face because of the pain of holding my jaws open.

    1. I hope that’s not the same thing as this little mini tarp she tried to put into my mouth that separated the tooth she wanted to fill. That thing was nasty. That was a definite NO.
