One month ago, I went to the dentist for my cleaning and to have three fillings. Y’all already know that I was terrified. It wasn’t just the fillings that terrified me, it was going to the dentist in general. I felt a little better because my dentist would be taking care of my fillings until I went for my fillings and found out that my dentist had been called away because a someone at the other location was sick.
My dental hygienist, Jordyn, was an absolute sweetheart. When I explained my terror of the dentist, including having my teeth cleaned, she went out of her way to help me. She explained every step she was going to do before she did it. I have extreme dry mouth because of quite a few of the medications I am on and she helped me to create a plan to prevent more cavities in the future because of it. Hopefully, it works. *crosses my fingers*
Then it was time for my fillings. Eeek!
