If you don't force it it shouldn't break, I think. I tried opening a pen with my teeth the second time, that's why it broke.
My dentist told me I had cavities. I don't even eat sweets that often.
I can't have cavities according to my dentist, because I don't have the kind of bacteria that causes them.
The thread is about HEALTH, so let's stay on-topic. : P
For chats that develop from posts here but are not about health, take them to VMs/PMs please. ^^
Ugh, dentist appointments. <<
My teeth aren't straight, so it's easy for me to get cavities. At a recent check, they told me I actually need braces. >_<
Oh, and anyone with braces or not, brushing your teeth properly is a must. To avoid cavities and bad breath.
There's also another reason, but please don't delete this post - it's an EXTREMELY important thing to know.
When I was a kid, I hated brushing my teeth. Naturally, I grew a lot of cavities, and the dentist kinda 'raged' at me *giggle*. So, she made gargle with some pink liquid, and spit it out. When I looked in the mirror, my whole teeth turned pink.
Guess what? I had to BRUSH MY TEETH THEN AND THERE UNTIL I GOT RID OF THE PINK ON MY TEETH ENTIRELY. And those pinkish stuff were damn stubborn that they did not come off even after I brushed for over thirty minutes.... the ultimate nightmare of going to the dentist...
So... if you don't want to be in my shoes, brush your teeth right, or else you might suffer XD.
After you get your braces taken off [this will be a while, trust], then you get to have a shiny retainer! It helps keep your teeth straight. You just need to take it off when eating.
Whatever you do, don't lose the retainer. Then your work is for naught.
...Wow, this is interesting timing...
Actually I was sick earlier today. I'm a new college student, and my parents give me a monthly "allowance" in order to pay for things like my rent, utilities, transportation, and food.
Since I got no extra spending money, I thought it would be a good idea to start skipping meals in order to save up some money for myself. Well it seems like that wasn't a very good idea. I have probably been doing some other things which probably aren't deemed "healthy". For example, I'm from Minnesota so the cold doesn't bother me much. Due to this, I only wear a t-shirt (no long sleeves or jacket) for my upper-body clothing when I bike to and from DigiPen. I wasn't feeling it's effects at first, but earlier today it just hit me as I suddenly got really cold and uncontrollable shivers. I went to sleep, got up a few hours later and took a hot shower, took some painkillers, and now I feel fine though I will still be going really easy on my body for a while so this doesn't happen again.
So biking in the cold and skipping meals obviously hasn't been good to me, but that's what life is for I suppose. Live and learn.
Sometime in the past week, I contracted a cold. I'm trying my hardest to avoid staying home, because missing a day of school would result in an incredibly large work-load.
Not a fun time.
Went to the dentist yesterday and got two sealants. it feels a little weird but its not something I cant handle.
I had four wisdom teeth taken out last week, from all sides of my mouth. I'm only just now starting to be able to chew solid foods again, but my front teeth hurt like hell and feel weird, and there's still gaping holes in my gums. x_x I hope that didn't mess up my front teeth somehow.
Seems my irregular sleeping hours, plus overworking during the night finally did it. This sore throat remains after a week. I do feel better, but I'm still taking pills for the inflammation in my throat. :/
And...I need to visit the dentist once the hectic times in school pass... ;_;
Hope I don't have cavities.
You guys sure like the dentist a lot. :-p
I do have to go there often, too. Once every two months, at least, for two things: getting my post-brace thing fixed to keep my teeth in place and check my jaw, which has a lame joint that keeps crackling and wearing itself out. It's not that bad, I guess.
Also, my braces would've costed a few thousand euro but my jaw was a few millimetres too far of an overbite so I was put into one of the groups who get free dental care. Funny because it wasn't even noteable and I saved thousands for a few millimetres.
