After 24 years of mad toothbrushing skills, I have my first cavity. :( I don't know where I went wrong?? It appears that one of my molars has a really tiny one, and the another molar looks like the enamel may be eroded. Calling the dentist today. I don't have dental insurance either, so I hope this isn't expensive to fix. BAH!!!

On the bright side...thank God for modern dentistry. :)

I've lost count how many I've had filled. It's more a matter of genes IMO than brushing. I brush more (and eat better) than most of my friends and I have more problems than they do.

I've had about 5 :(


After the first one, I decided that I F@#$ing hate novacane, so on the other ones, I went without it.

You remember that scene in fight club where Tyler pours the Lye on Tyler's hand... and he keeps trying to "slip away to somewhere else"

Yeah, that's kinda what happened. It wasn't bad.

Bah, I've had them all my life. You'll get used to it.

With everything, it shouldn't be more than say $160 to fill it.

A hammer and a chisel works for me!

Wow you are in for an experience, the pencil sized needle jabed into the gum line and wiggled around violently. The intense pain of the drill. The numb lip and tongue and associated drooling problem. The overly sensative teeth for a month and all the other problems afterwards!

I brush my teeth daily and still had 7 cavaties at once! I only got 1 of them filled because the other 6 were sooooooo tiny it wasn't worth filling them. I guess it has alot to do with how soft your teeth are, and how often you floss. I still slack on flossing sometimes. Everyone in my family is cavaity prone and my mother even went to dental school and is a tooth care fanatic. I guess it runs in the family.
