When I was a child, i dont remember my parents taking us 5 kids to the dentist much. In fact, I can only remember going once. From then on, my dad was always deployed and my mom worked 2 jobs at times. I was never great at taking care of my teeth...although I could kick myself for it now. I didnt have insurance until last year and didn't think about making an appointment, although i had a great case of calculus build up. So i finally got the courage to make an appointment for August 8. I went in and thought I got the worst news ever...i had periodontal disease and although they caught it early with minimal gum loss, i went into depression. I cried and cried to the point to where it started to upset my disabled son. I got the call that my insurance accepted the claim for a deep cleaning so i went in last Tuesday for part one and yesterday for part two. My teeth no longer have calculus. I started brushing with my electric toothbrush, using my waterpik and rinsing with saltwater. My teeth are very stable with no movement, my gums are healing great and the gum recession is very mild. The best thing i could have done was make that appointment that i was so afraid of making! You can do it! Always stay positive!
