Re: worried about split gum

What are you embarassed about?

Giving away some trade secrets here, but dentists don't really give a damn about how decayed people's teeth are. We don't get angry and we won't "get you into trouble about it"!

Seriously, you've got 24 broken teeth? Great news, I get to fix them and you get to pay me! :devilish:

We spend years of our life learning to fix damaged teeth, so why should we get upset when we get busted teeth to fix? :D

So go and see a dentist, no matter what's wrong with you, it won't be half as bad as what your imagination is telling you right now :D
