Out of the Blue

I've got a painful tooth and a sore back to contend with, so I'm trying not to overdose on Advil until I get to see Dr. Toothy. This tooth has been the cause of two different dentist switches, as I was unhappy with the original Dr. Toothy's diagnosis that it needed a root canal after he "fixed" it once, and I was unhappy with how his short-time successor "fixed" it without a root canal (as I knew then it wasn't completely right, and I am now proven correct). For the inevitable comments about my dental woes, I'll say it's a combination of bad genetics (both my parents had tooth issues) and bad luck, as I smashed my mouth in a bicycle accident in my youth. Oh well, otherwise I'm generally pretty healthy, so I'll gladly live with this situation compared with the real issues that so many have with their wellbeing.

2. Genetics Play A Major Roll Sep 6, 2008, 17:10 Paranoid Jack
I have great genetics... when it comes to teeth anyway.

My wife is always hoping I'll come out of the dentist office saying that I have a cavity... but I never do. Besides my wisdom teeth being removed in my mid to late teens I can't remember any other troubles since I was about eight years old.

I only brush once a day. Only floss occasionally. And my teeth are clean enough/white enough (besides the dead one, skateboarding accident as a kid) that I don't use any whitener other than special toothpaste.

Wish I was as lucky with my spine.

Hope you get that thing sorted out Blue.
