The photos were taken a few months ago. I had a ten year old crown removed, a root canal done, and a new crown made. I started to write about it, but I didn't want to make anyone panic. Other than the root canal taking a long time, my teeth are heavily calcified making them hard to work on, it was not unpleasant. The vibrations when the root canal was being done are unique, like nothing else, not unpleasant, but unusual. I am very happy with the outcome, a complete success and the new crown is made out of some miracle substance that is likely to outlast me. (The doc said, you will break your jaw, before you will break that crown.) The 3 or 4 hours of time in the chair, payed off with being pain free and able to eat anything that does not eat me first.
To your health, this weeks Sunday five
1: Would you sooner see your Dentist or have your taxes reviewed by the IRS?
2: Have you ever delayed a Dental appointment, for more than a year?
3: Do you take a daily multivitamin pill?
4: Do you like or dislike your doctor? (Or don't have one?)
5: Would you trust a doctor that smoked?
1: Would you sooner see your Dentist or have your taxes reviewed by the IRS? I don't really fear either, at least with the dentist I know what to expect.
2: Have you ever delayed a Dental appointment, for more than a year? Yes, how long did I live in Kentucky?
3: Do you take a daily multivitamin pill? Yes, started based on a recommendation from a Doc, 35 years ago.
4: Do you like or dislike your doctor? (Or don't have one?) I like her, I wish her office would go to electronic records and electronic prescribing.
5: Would you trust a doctor that smoked? Yes, as long as they were honest about it. My father's doctor smoked, Cliff was honest that it was unhealthy and that he would likely live longer and healthier if he quit. He died of a massive heart attack driving his boat at high speed.
Please share your answers in the comments,
1. Here Mrs Tax Lady. Feel free to examine.ReplyDelete
2. Yes. Once many years when I was young.
3. No, but I have in the past for a short time.
4. I like my doctor. He is hot, competent and friendly.
5. Yes. I can't see how him smoking would change his medical skills. I remember the days of the doctor's surgery with overflowing ashtrays.
All Docs are hot in some way,Delete
1: Would you sooner see your Dentist or have your taxes reviewed by the IRS? DentistReplyDelete
2: Have you ever delayed a Dental appointment, for more than a year? I used to be awful about visiting the dentist. For some reason, when I hit around 30, I started going [happily] religiously.
3: Do you take a daily multivitamin pill? I have been lately, but hadn't for a while.
4: Do you like or dislike your doctor? (Or don't have one?) I love my public health doctor. Private doctor is just OK.
5: Would you trust a doctor that smoked? Interesting question. I don't know about trust, but I'd lose respect.
My grandmother was advised by her doctor in the 1930's to take up smoking to exercise her lungsDelete
1. The dentist.ReplyDelete
2. Yes, for many years, based on traumatic visits to the dentist as a child in the 1950's! Dentists are kinder now and I attend regularly, if somewhat nervously, for check-ups.
3. Yes, vitamin D, as there's often very little sunshine in the UK for much of the year.
4. I can't say, I have no idea who my doctor is. The GP situation in the UK with the NHS is that if you're lucky enough to get to see one it's whoever is on duty on that day and is frequently a locum or someone who you will never see again.
5. I would prefer not to know, as long as they don't stink of cigarettes and do a good job!
The dentists of my childhood, in the 60's and 70's were terrible by comparison to who I see nowDelete
3: yes, a women's formula
5: HELL NO! they should know better than to do THAT!
Take care of yourselfDelete
1. Used to be mortally afraid of the dentist, but I've gotten over that.ReplyDelete
2. I delayed dental appointments for over seven years! See #1.
3. I don't.
4. I like mine. He's nearing retirement and I DREAD having to find a new one I like and trust. This one knows me and all my medical stuff. Soon, I'll have to start all over.
5. I would. I get it's a raised eyebrow if he told you to stop smoking, or from the overweight doc who told me I needed to diet. It doesn't make the medical advice less sound, just that they're human, just like me. Kind of.
There are people I hope never retire.Delete
!. Taxes..without a doubt.ReplyDelete
3. Yes, I've been taking one a day for some 40 years.
4. Yes, not as much as the once before her who retired 4 years ago but I still like her.
5. I've never had a doctor who smoked. I don't think I'd trust them.
My taxes have gotten simpleDelete
1. Dentist! They don't skeer me.ReplyDelete
2. Yes, when I was young and poor in university days.
3. No, not needed if you eat a balanced diet.
4. I like my doctor. All my doctors actually.
5. Would any doctor DARE smoke these days? They are all expected to be paragons of physical fitness and athleticism nowadays. I feel sorry for them. Maybe they can still drink though.
Few doctors smoke, not many, but someDelete
1: Would you sooner see your Dentist or have your taxes reviewed by the IRS? I'm going dentist. Mine is quite hot.ReplyDelete
2: Have you ever delayed a Dental appointment, for more than a year? I didn't go for many years after a very VERY bad experience, but now I have a dentist I like--did I mentions he's hot--and he has a good staff.
3: Do you take a daily multivitamin pill? I do not.
4: Do you like or dislike your doctor? (Or don't have one?) I like her very much. Plain spoken, which I love.
5: Would you trust a doctor that smoked? I trust no one who smokes these days with all we know, and the fact that I have lost too many family members to lung cancer.
My father died with lung cancer, about 60 years after he quit smoking.Delete
