At our last cleaning the dentist said both Syd & Rob had cavities. This is unheard of for me, A) I am pretty darn good at getting them to brush & floss AND B) I've had ONE sorta cavity in my life. I felt better when the hygienist said that it really is mostly genetics.
"forgot" to mention to them that it involves a shot. Our dentist was amazing- hhe hid the needle from them & they still don't know to this day that they had two shots of novocaine.
nitrous oxide which I've never had before & it didn't seem to make a big difference. The dentist said they probably wouldn't need any the next time they come in.
P.S. More Carter dental adventures here.
