I too am pleased that you are still here to tell your tales. I look forward to reading more about your sleep apnea
I didn't even own a toothbrush—my parents had never brushed their teeth, and as adults their oral hygiene was achieved by soaking rather than brushing. I'd never even heard of dental floss, and I ate far too much candy. I prefer not to think about the excruciating pain that decay and resulting abscesses caused—pain that you can hear, that stops the world, that makes listening to the teacher or concentrating on homework impossible.
Amen!!! Well-said!!!!!Thanks for the kind words, irmemac. I can assure you that there is a way through all the anxiety and worry, and you can have a healthy smile. Finding a compassionate dentist is the first and most important part, in my opinion. I wish you luck on your journey, however you happen to progress on it. It can seem to take forever to get started but you're already on the way, and you'll get there in time.
